Kant is a pivotal thinker in Adorno's intellectual world. Although he wrote monographs on Hegel, Husserl, and Kierkegaard, the closest Adorno came to an extended discussion of Kant are two lecture courses, one concentrating on the Critique of Pure Reason and the other on the Critique of Practical Reason. This new volume by Adorno comprises his lectures on the former.

Amazing that Adorno, in his lectures on Kant, could be so lucid and clear.... as opposed to his own works..
I'm not sure I agree with all of Adorno's views here, particularly with respect to Kant's relationship with idealism and "the block", but this book does a great job of properly situating Kant within a transitional period for modern philosophy.
Astoundingly clear and interesting, as are most of Adorno's lectures. He goes all over the place, in the process managing to give a very good basic introduction to Kant.

Theodor Wiesengrund Adorno was one of the most important philosophers and social critics in Germany after World War II. Although less well known among anglophone philosophers than his contemporary Hans-Georg Gadamer, Adorno had even greater influence on scholars and intellectuals in postwar Germany.
