Reviews

'Adorno is a political thinker who wished to bring about radical change.' - Iris Murdoch

'A volume of Adorno's essays is equivalent to a whole shelf of books on literature.' - Susan Sontag

'Adorno expounds what may be called a new philosophy of consciousness. His philosophy lives, dangerously but also fruitfully, in proximity to an ascetic puritanical moral rage, an attachment to some items in the structure and vocabulary of Marxism, and a feeling that human suffering is the only important thing and makes nonsense of everything else... Adorno is a political thinker who wishes to bring about radical change. He is also a philosopher, with a zest for metaphysics, who is at home in the western philosophical tradition.' - Irish Murdoch
