ADORNO Translated by Wieland Hoban ‘When Adorno speaks to us from beyond the grave on right-wing extremism, we should all listen.’ Cas Mudde, University of Georgia In a 1967 lecture, Adorno analyzed the goals, resources and tactics of the new right-wing nationalism of this time.

Philosophical Elements of a Theory of Society 1964 THEODOR W. ADORNO Translated by Wieland Hoban ‘Against the alleged waning of Adorno’s radical commitments in his last years, these lectures of 1964 on the relationship between social theory and empirical research testify to his abiding Marxist loyalties. Exhorting his students to pierce the “technological veil” of their “administered world,” he insists on the power of class, reified consciousness, and the impoverishment of experience in the irrational totality of late capitalism.’ Martin Jay, University of California, Berkeley In these lectures, Adorno develops a critique of both sociology and philosophy, showing that theoretical work requires mediation between the two. Where sociology needs a philosophical approach to challenge a drive towards uniformity in empirical research, philosophy cannot fully describe our world without paying heed to sociological analysis. 229 x 152mm • 192 pages • 2019 HB • 978-0-7456-7947-1 • £55.00 / $69.95 / €67.90 PB • 978-0-7456-7948-8 • £17.99 / $24.95 / €23.90 ebook available
