Adorno and Theology [9780567569295]

  • "In complex and often deeply puzzling ways, Adorno's thinking was profoundly informed by theology. While rigorously adhering to the prohibition of images, he all the same argued that theology contains a utopian aspiration that no genuine critical theorycan do without. This book stands out as one of the most lucid and comprehensive studies of the theological strands of Adorno's thinking. In the absence of confession and after the "death of god," it testifies to the continuing philosophical value and relevance of religion." "Theodor Adorno (1903-1969), the German sociologist and philosopher, was one of the intellectual leaders of the post-war Frankfurt School. This book presents and analyzes Adorno's writings on theology and religion in a clear and accessible way. The book includes a general introduction to Adorno's thought, and examines his relationship with the work of Walter Benjamin (Karl Popper), and his criticism of the Culture Industry' and ideology. All of these topics are explored with attention to how they engage with contemporary debates within theology. This is accomplished by bringing Adorno's work into dialogue with major concerns and authors. The volume concludes by highlighting an often neglected aspect of Adorno's writing - his philosophy of music - and how this aesthetic appreciation of the Sublime informs contemporary theological reflection."--BOOK JACKET.
