Theodor Adorno’s recognition as a cultural critic has been well-established for it slow, yet his prestige as a thinker is still doubtful. In Adorno and the Ends of Philosophy Andrew Bowie seeks to set up what Adorno can give a contribution to philosophy this day.

Adorno’s released texts are particularly tricky and feature tended to prevent his reception via a wide philosophical viewers. His major impression as a thinker while he was once alive was once, notwithstanding, usually in response to his very lucid public lectures. Drawing on those lectures, either released and unpublished, Bowie argues that very important contemporary interpretations of Hegel, and comparable advancements in pragmatism, echo key principles in Adorno’s notion. even as, Adorno’s insistence that philosophy may still make the Holocaust significant to the evaluate of recent rationality indicates ways that those ways may be complemented by means of his preparedness to confront essentially the most tense points of contemporary heritage. What emerges is a remarkably transparent and fascinating re-interpretation of Adorno’s idea, in addition to an illuminating and unique assessment of the kingdom of latest philosophy.

Adorno and the Ends of Philosophy can be fundamental to scholars of Adorno’s paintings in any respect degrees. This compelling e-book can be set to ignite debate surrounding the reception of Adorno’s philosophy and produce him into the mainstream of philosophical debate at a time whilst the divisions among analytical and eu philosophy are more and more breaking down.
