In The Hotel Abyss: An Hegelian-marxist Critique Of Adorno : Studies in Critical Social Sciences, Volume 60 Paperback / softback
Part of the Studies in Critical Social Sciences series
Theodor W. Adorno was a German sociologist, philosopher and musicologist known for his critical theory of society.
In the Hotel Abyss is a critical analysis of a selection of Adorno's work framed by four essential concerns: Adorno's method of analysis; the absence of a theory of social change; the relationship of his approach to the dialectics of Hegel and Marx; and Adorno's use of his approach with respect to jazz, popular music, radio and pro-fascist propaganda of the 1930s and '40s as an instrument to disparage the working class.
