i love adorno, but he had some ideas about music that are kinda annoying.
Francesco Ranieri
L’assunto che Adorno sia uno dei più grandi filosofi della modernità e del pensiero dittatoriale, non deve distogliere il lettore da una sana critica su di un testo, questo, ritenuto uno dei più elevati sulla musica. Questo testo non ha nulla di scientifico, anche i riferimenti all’estetica musicale tanto cari alla filosofia, si riducono ad una sterile e francamente dozzinale critica sui generi musicali.

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. In the 1960s he was the most prominent challenger to both Sir Karl Popper's philosophy of science a ...more
