Cambridge Companion to Adorno by Tom Huhn

Book Description

The great German philosopher and aesthetic theorist Theodor Wiesengrund Adorno (1903-69) was one of the main philosophers of the first generation of the Frankfurt School of critical theory. An accomplished musician, Adorno first focused on the theory of culture and art. Later he turned to the problem of the self-defeating dialectic of modern reason and freedom. In this collection of essays, imbued with the most up-to-date research, a distinguished roster of Adorno specialists explore the full range of his contributions to philosophy, history, music theory, aesthetics and sociology. New readers will find this the most convenient and accessible guide to Adorno currently available. Advanced students and specialists will find a conspectus of recent developments in the interpretation of Adorno.

Cambridge Companion to Adorno by Tom Huhn Cambridge Companion to Adorno, Hardback (July 2004)

An accessible guide to T. W. Adorno, who was one of the main philosophers of the Frankfurt School of critical theory.

Semblance of Subjectivity by Tom Huhn Semblance of Subjectivity, Paperback (February 1999)

The essays are organized around the twin themes of semblance and subjectivity. Whereas the concept of semblance, or illusion, points to Adorno's links with Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud, the concept of subjectivity recalls his lifelong struggle with a philosophy ofconsciousness stemming from Kant, Hegel, and Lukacs.

Wake of Art by Tom Huhn Wake of Art, Hardback (August 1998)

Arthur C. Danto has been increasingly concerned with the implications of the demise of modernism, and out of the wake of modernist art has suggested that a radically pluralistic art world has emerged. His essays here discuss his vision of the art world and the implications it has for criticism.
