Review:

“Adorno’s polemical antagonism to Heidegger hid what now appears as a fateful proximity between their two philosophies. The drive toward concreteness, the critique of technological modernity, the critical power of art, an ethics without principles, the need for remembrance are among the philosophical tropes binding Adorno and Heidegger together. Macdonald and Ziarek have put together an exhilarating collection of essays exploring these and related topics. For the English-speaking reader, the dialogue between Adorno and Heidegger begins with this volume.”―J. M. Bernstein, New School for Social Research

“Partisan scholarship has perhaps made it too easy to simply separate Adorno and Heidegger, and this volume admirably makes the case that such a separation is theoretically and historically erroneous. This fine collection of essays by an important and diverse group of experts brings us to the next stage of evaluating Heidegger and Adorno’s work.”―Stephen H. Watson, University of Notre Dame

Book Description Stanford University Press, United States, 2007. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Adorno and Heidegger explores the conflictual history of two important traditions of twentieth-century European thought: the critical theory of Theodor W. Adorno and the ontology of Martin Heidegger. As is well known, there has been little productive engagement between these two schools of thought, in large measure due to Adorno s sustained and unanswered critique of Heidegger. Stemming from this critique, numerous political and philosophical barriers have kept these traditions separate, such that they have rarely been submitted to scrutiny, let alone questioned. The essays making up this collection are fresh and original attempts at coming to terms with the nuances and difficulties that these two towering figures have bequeathed to the history of European thought. The volume s authors deal with a variety of issues ranging from epistemology to esthetics, to ethics, to intellectual history and modernity, providing the reader with detailed insight into a thorny debate in the history of recent European thought.
