Adorno and Critical Theory
Distributed for University of Wales Press
Hauke Brunkhorst's book is the first English-language assessment of Adorno's life and work. He stresses the links between Adorno and the dialectical thinking of Hegel and Marx, but also emphasizes the connection between Kant and Adorno. The book sheds new light on Adorno's negative dialectic and is an important contribution to the debate on this celebrated philosopher.
“For those readers wanting a nuanced, corrective treatment of Adorno’s thought on the whole or specifically vis-à-vis the contemporary tradition and his contribution to it . . . [an] excellent book.” –Philosophy in Review
