--Thomas Huhn, "The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism" " This is a rich and generous book. The wealth of information on twentieth century European debates in aesthetics and cultural criticism is more than matched by the complexity and subtlety of the interpretation of Adorno's aesthetics." --Thomas Huhn, "The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism" " Zuidervaart makes helpful comparisons between Adorno's thought and that of Benjamin and Luka cs and illuminates very clearly the decisive Kantian and, especially, Hegelian elements in Adorno's complex ensemble of concepts.... In all, this is a book that does considerable justice to the subtlety and sheer range of Adorno's thought." --Nicholas Walker, "Times Higher Education Supplement" & quot; This is a rich and generous book.
