Adorno continues to have an impact on disciplines as diverse as philosophy, sociology, psychology, cultural studies, musicology and literary theory. An uncompromising critic, even as Adorno contests many of the premises of the philosophical tradition, he also reinvigorates that tradition in his concerted attempt to stem or to reverse potentially catastrophic tendencies in the West. This book serves as a guide through the intricate labyrinth of Adorno's work. Expert contributors make Adorno accessible to a new generation of readers without simplifying his thought. They provide readers with the key concepts needed to decipher Adorno's often daunting books and essays.

Review quote

"This collection accomplishes its goal to lead us 'through the intricate labyrinth of Adorno's work.' It is a reliable guide and will leave readers of Adorno less perplexed." Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews "An excellent introduction to issues in Adorno scholarship today, focusing on difficult problems of the legacy of German Idealism, Marxism, and the philosophy of history after the twentieth century, and the currency with which Adorno's thought can continue to task the potential political purchase of critical theory." - Christopher Cutrone, School of the Art Institute of Chicago
