`To the isolated, isolation seems an indubitable certainty; they are bewitched on pain of losing their existence, not to perceive how mediated their isolation is.'' Theodor Adorno.
Theodor Adorno was one of the great intellectual figures of the twentieth century. Negative Dialectics is his major and culminating work. In it he attempts to free critical thought from the blinding orthodoxies of late capitalism, and earlier ages too. The book is essential reading for students of Adorno and is a vital weapon in making sense of modern times.
`Here the programme of Adorno''s earlier writings has come to fruition.'' TLS
