Theodor W. Adorno

“What human beings seek to learn from nature is how to use it to dominate wholly both it and human beings. Nothing else counts. Ruthless toward itself, the Enlightenment has eradicated the last remnant of its own self-awareness. Only thought which does violence to itself is hard enough to shatter myths.”


Theodor W. Adorno, Dialectic of Enlightenment: Philosophical Fragments
