Aesthetic theory by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
26 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 2,122 libraries worldwide
The culmination of a lifetime of aesthetic investigation, Aesthetic Theory is Adorno's major work, a defense of modernism that is paradoxical in its defense of illusion. In it, Adorno takes up the problem of art in a day when "it goes without saying that nothing concerning art goes without saying." In the course of his discussion, Adorno revisits such concepts as the sublime, the ugly, and the beautiful, demonstrating that concepts such as these are reservoirs of human experience. These experiences ultimately underlie aesthetics, for in Adorno's formulation "art is the sedimented history of human misery."
The arcades project by Walter Benjamin( Book )
77 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 1,334 libraries worldwide
Opera incompiuta alla quale l'autore lavorò per tredici anni, "I passages di Parigi" si presenta come affascinante espressione di quella continua proliferazione dei materiali e infinita esplorazione del reale storico che è una delle chiavi di lettura della modernità. Combinando testi, intuizioni ed elaborazione teorica, e lasciando quest'ultima programmaticamente in secondo piano, Walter Benjamin si propone di risalire alle origini dell'epoca moderna, studiata a partire dalla specifica realtà di Parigi come ideale centro del mondo, colta in una miriade di dettagli eterogenei e apparentemente marginali: accanto ai passages, la merce, la prostituzione, il "flâneur", il gioco, la moda, l'art nouveau, la modernizzazione urbanistica di Haussmann, il collezionismo (uno dei tanti motivi autobiografici dalla ricerca benjaminiana), ma anche Blanqui, Nietzsche, Poe e soprattutto Baudelaire, autentico nume tutelare dell'intero progetto. Con una sezione di "Testimonianze" sulla genesi dell'opera, una di "Paralipomeni" e - per la prima volta - un completo "Indice dei nomi"

Kant's Critique of pure reason (1959) by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 535 libraries worldwide
Adorno attempts to make Kant's thought comprehensible to students by focusing on what he regards as problematic aspects of Kant's philosophy. Adorno examines his dualism and what he called the Kantian "block": the contradictions arising from Kant's resistance to the idealism that his successors, Fichte, Schelling, and Hegel, saw as the inevitable outcome of his ideas. But these lectures also provide an accessible introduction to the rationale for Adorno's own philosophy as expounded in Negative Dialectics and his other major writings. Adorno's view of Kant forms an integral part of his own philosophy, since he argues that the way out of the Kantian contradictions is to show the necessity of the dialectical thinking that Kant himself spurned. This in turn enables Adorno to criticize Anglo-Saxon scientistic or positivist thought, as well as the philosophy of existentialism
Ästhetische Theorie by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
77 editions published between 1970 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 522 libraries worldwide
L'ultimo libro, postumo, di Adorno è senz'altro l'opera più concettualmente aspra del filosofo francofortese. L'asprezza deriva dal compito che l'autore si è visto assegnare dal proprio oggetto: pensare l'opera d'arte dall'interno spingendola al concetto pur sapendo che essa è qualcosa di altro dal concetto. Pensarla senza cedere alle facili sirene dell'empatia e del vissuto; non in un'astratta essenza, bensì nella complessa fenomenicità delle sue manifestazioni storiche. Pensare l'opera d'arte, dunque, nella sua appartenenza al mondo delle merci, ma fino in fondo, ossia come una mercé assoluta che nega se stessa, non facile asilo di una interiorità e di una soggettività in via di sparizione, bensì "cosa" che si rifiuta alla reificazione. Pensare il negativo che si mostra come il vero e proprio interno dell'opera d'arte contemporanea, senza consegnarlo ad un'ontologia edificante, ma cogliendovi piuttosto l'attestazione oggettiva che il circolo dell'effettualità non è perfetto e chiuso in se stesso

Can one live after Auschwitz? : a philosophical reader by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 350 libraries worldwide
What took place in Auschwitz revokes what Adorno termed the "Western legacy of positivity", the innermost substance of traditional philosophy. The prime task of philosophy then remains to reflect on its own failure, its own complicity in such events. Yet in linking the question of philosophy to historical occurrence, Adorno seems not to have abandoned his paradoxical hope that philosophy might not be entirely closed to the idea of redemption. He prepares for an altogether different praxis, one no longer conceived in traditionally Marxist terms but rather to be gleaned from "metaphysical experience". This text anatomizes the range of Adorno's concerns, including sections such as "Art, Memory of Suffering", "Damaged Life", "Administered World, Reified Thought", "Toward a New Categorical Imperative", and "A Philosophy That Keeps Itself Alive"
The origin of German tragic drama by Walter Benjamin( Book )
40 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 341 libraries worldwide
"Walter Benjamin is widely acknowledged as amongst the greatest literary critics of this century, and The Origin of German Tragic Drama is his most sustained and original work. Opponents of Benjamin's aesthetics - singled out this work as one of the main sources of literary modernism in the twentieth century." "The Origin of German Tragic Drama begins with a general theoretical introduction on the nature of the baroque art of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, concentrating on the peculiar stage-form of royal martyr dramas called Trauerspiel. Benjamin also comments on the engravings of Durer, and the theatre of Shakespeare and Calderon. Baroque tragedy, he argues, was distinguished from classical tragedy by its shift from myth into history."--BOOK JACKET
Night music : essays on music 1928-1962 by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 331 libraries worldwide
"Although Theodor W. Adorno is best known for his association with the Frankfurt School of Critical Theory, he began his career as a composer and successful music critic. Night Music presents the first complete English translations of two collections of texts compiled by Adorno - Moments musicaux, containing essays written between 1928 and 1962, and Theory of New Music, a group of texts written between 1929 and 1955. In Moments musicaux, Adorno echoes Schubert s eponymous cycle, with its emphasis on aphorism, and offers lyrical reflections on music of the past and his own time. The essays include extended aesthetic analyses that demonstrate Adorno s aim to apply high philosophical standards to the study of music. Theory of New Music, as its title indicates, presents Adorno's thoughts and theories on the composition, reception, and analysis of the music that was being written around him. His extensive philosophical writing ultimately prevented him from pursuing the compositional career he had once envisaged, but his view of the modern music of the time is not simply that of a theorist, but clearly also that of a composer. Though his advocacy of the Second Viennese School, comprising composer Arnold Schoenberg and his pupils, is well known, many of his writings in this field have remained obscure. Collected in their entirety for the first time in English, the insightful texts in Night Music show the breadth of Adorno's musical understanding and reveal an overlooked side to this significant thinker."--BOOK JACKET
History and freedom : lectures 1964-1965 by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
11 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and German and held by 291 libraries worldwide
"Early in the 1960s Adorno gave four courses of lectures on the road leading to Negative Dialectics, his magnum opus of 1966. The second of these was concerned with the topics of history and freedom. In terms of content, these lectures represented an early version of the chapters in Negative Dialectics devoted to Kant and Hegel. In formal terms, these were improvised lectures that permit us to glimpse a philosophical work in progress."--Page 4 of cover

Lectures on negative dialectics : fragments of a lecture course 1965/1966 by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
9 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 196 libraries worldwide
This volume comprises one of the key lecture courses leading up to the publication in 1966 of Adorno's major work, Negative Dialectics. These lectures focus on developing the concepts critical to the introductory section of that book. They show Adorno as an embattled philosopher defining his own methodology among the prevailing trends of the time. As a critical theorist, he repudiated the worn-out Marxist stereotypes still dominant in the Soviet bloc ' he specifically addresses his remarks to students who had escaped from the East in the period leading up to the building of the Berlin Wall in 1961. Influenced as he was by the empirical schools of thought he had encountered in the United States, he nevertheless continued to resist what he saw as their surrender to scientific and mathematical abstraction. However, their influence was potent enough to prevent him from reverting to the traditional idealisms still prevalent in Germany, or to their latest manifestations in the shape of the new ontology of Heidegger and his disciples. Instead, he attempts to define, perhaps more simply and fully than in the final published version, a 'negative', i.e. critical, approach to philosophy. Permeating the whole book is Adorno's sense of the overwhelming power of totalizing, dominating systems in the post-Auschwitz world. Intellectual negativity, therefore, commits him to the stubborn defence of individuals ' both facts and people ' who stubbornly refuse to become integrated into 'the administered world'. These lectures reveal Adorno to be a lively and engaging lecturer. He makes serious demands on his listeners but always manages to enliven his arguments with observations on philosophers and writers such as Proust and Brecht and comments on current events. Heavy intellectual artillery is combined with a concern for his students' progress
