<p><b>A definitive contribution to scholarship on Adorno, bringing together the foremost experts in the field</b></p> <p>As one of the leading continental philosophers of the last century, and one of the pioneering members of the Frankfurt School, Theodor W. Adorno is the author of numerous influential—and at times quite radical—works on diverse topics in aesthetics, social theory, moral philosophy, and the history of modern philosophy, all of which concern the contradictions of modern society and its relation to human suffering and the human condition. Having authored substantial contributions to critical theory which contain searching critiques of the ‘culture industry’ and the ‘identity thinking’ of modern Western society, Adorno helped establish an interdisciplinary but philosophically rigorous study of culture and provided some of the most startling and revolutionary critiques of Western society to date. </p> <p><i>The Blackwell Companion to Adorno</i> is the largest collection of essays by Adorno specialists ever gathered in a single volume. Part of the acclaimed Blackwell Companions to Philosophy series, this important contribution to the field explores Adorno’s lasting impact on many sub-fields of philosophy. Seven sections, encompassing a diverse range of topics and perspectives, explore Adorno’s intellectual foundations, his critiques of culture, his views on ethics and politics, and his analyses of history and domination.</p> <ul> <li>Provides new research and fresh perspectives on Adorno’s views and writings</li> <li>Offers an authoritative, single-volume resource for Adorno scholarship</li> <li>Addresses renewed interest in Adorno’s significance to contemporary questions in philosophy</li> <li>Presents over 40 essays written by international-recognized experts in the field</li> </ul> <p>A singular advancement in Adorno scholarship, the<i> Companion to Adorno </i>is an indispensable resource for Adorno specialists and anyone working in modern European philosophy, contemporary cultural criticism, social theory, German history, and aesthetics.</p>

<p>"This outstanding <i>Companion</i> proves the usual assumption wrong that there is no possibility today to contribute something new and original to the work of Theodor W. Adorno. The three editors, all equally superb experts of his philosophy, have managed with circumspection and discretion to collect thoroughly stimulating articles that together open up a novel and fresh perspective on this central figure of critical theory. Everyone who's keeping up with what's going on in this tradition has to read this <i>Companion.</i>"<br /><b>—Axel Honneth,</b> Jack C. Weinstein Professor of the Humanities, Columbia University</p> <p>"An exemplary <i>Companion</i> of extremely well-formed essays together covering the extraordinary range of Adorno's philosophical, social, and aesthetic thought. Highly recommended for anyone working through the issues and relevance of critical theory today."<br /><b>—Lydia Goehr,</b> Professor of Philosophy, Columbia University</p> <p>As one of the leading continental philosophers of the last century, and a pioneering member of the Frankfurt School, Theodor W. Adorno was the author of seminal—and at times quite radical— scholarship in aesthetics, social theory, moral philosophy, and the history of modern philosophy which concerns the contradictions of modern society in relation to human suffering and the human condition. Having made substantial contributions to critical theory which levy searching critiques of the 'culture industry' and the 'identity thinking' of modern Western society, Adorno helped establish an interdisciplinary but philosophically rigorous study of culture, and provided some of the most startling and revolutionary critiques of Western society to date.</p> <p><i>A Companion to Adorno</i> is the largest collection of newly commissioned essays by a distinguished array of Adorno scholars, specialists, and leading interpreters ever gathered in a single volume. Part of the distinguished <i>Blackwell Companions to Philosophy</i> series, this important contribution to the field explores Adorno's lasting impact on many sub-fields of philosophy from a rich variety of perspectives. Chapters in each of seven sections explore Adorno's intellectual foundations, his critiques of culture, his views on ethics and politics, and his analyses of history and domination, and collectively asserting the contemporary importance of his social thought and broader intellectual legacy.</p> <p>A singular advancement in Adorno scholarship, <i>A Companion to Adorno</i> is an indispensable resource for Adorno specialists and researchers working in modern European philosophy, contemporary cultural criticism, social theory, German history, and aesthetics.</p>
