Theodor W. Adorno (1903-1969) was the leading philosopher of the first generation of the Frankfurt School and is best known for his contributions to aesthetics and social theory. In this highly original contribution to the literature on Adorno, J.M. Bernstein offers the first attempt in any language to provide an account of the ethical theory latent in Adorno's writings. This book will be widely acknowledged as the standard work on Adorno's ethics and will interest professionals and students of philosophy, political theory, sociology, history of ideas, art history and music.

"This is a marvelous book, balancing a commitment to hermeneutic explication with a desire to make Adorno relevant to contemporary thought in the widest possible sense." Choice "Bernstein's study of Adorno may mark a watershed in the reception of Adorno in the Anglo-american philosophical community... This is a marvelous book, balancing a commitment to hermeneutic explication with a desire to make Adorno relevant to contemporary thought in the widest possible sense. Highly recommended for general readers and upper-division undergraduates through professionals." Choice
