By Brian O'Connor

The simply philosophical issues of Theodor W. Adorno's adverse dialectic would appear to be some distance faraway from the concreteness of serious concept; Adorno's philosophy considers maybe the main conventional topic of "pure" philosophy, the constitution of expertise, while severe conception examines particular features of society. yet, as Brian O'Connor demonstrates during this hugely unique interpretation of Adorno's philosophy, the destructive dialectic will be obvious because the theoretical starting place of the reflexivity or serious rationality required through severe concept. Adorno, O'Connor argues, is dedicated to the "concretion" of philosophy: his thesis of nonidentity makes an attempt to teach that truth isn't really reducible to appearances. This lays the basis for the utilized "concrete" critique of appearances that's necessary to the potential for serious theory.To explicate the context within which Adorno's philosophy operates -- the culture of contemporary German philosophy, from Kant to Heidegger -- O'Connor examines intimately the guidelines of those philosophers in addition to Adorno's self-defining changes with them. O'Connor discusses Georg Lucàcs and the impression of his "protocritical idea" on Adorno's concept; the weather of Kant's and Hegel's German idealism appropriated via Adorno for his thought of subject-object mediation; the concern of the item and the organization of the topic in Adorno's epistemology; and Adorno's vital opinions of Kant and the phenomenology of Heidegger and Husserl, evaluations that either light up Adorno's key thoughts and show his development of severe conception via an engagement with the issues of philosophy.
