Theodor Adorno's Aesthetic Theory is a vast labyrinth that anyone interested in modern aesthetic theory must at some time enter.

Theodor Adorno's Aesthetic Theory is a vast labyrinth that anyone interested in modern aesthetic theory must at some time enter/5(9). Simply put, Aesthetic Theory is one of the most important philosophical works-and perhaps the most important study of aesthetics-of the 20th century. This fresh and rigorous translation is particularly welcome because Adorno has never been fully understood in America.

This is a book one returns to again and again. Highly recommended. The book's stylistic peculiarities derive, as a whole, from what makes Aesthetic Theory inimical to an American context: that it is oriented not to its readers but to the thing-in-itself.

This is not, as will be immediately suspected, motivated by indifference to its readers. On the contrary. the book makes itself remote from its xi. Aesthetic Theory is Adorno's posthumous magnum opus and the culmination of a lifetime's investigation. Analysing the sublime, the ugly and the beautiful, Adorno shows how such concepts frame and distil human experience and that it is human experience that ultimately underlies aesthetics.5/5(2).

Analysing the sublime, the ugly and the beautiful, Adorno shows how such concepts frame and distil human experience and that it is human experience that ultimately underlies aesthetics.

Adorno’s claim is that the sociology of art reveals that the autonomous, purely aesthetic, content of the art work is in fact a sedimented social content. By pursuing its aesthetic concerns, the art work is pursuing the concerns of mundane society, albeit crucially stripped of the constraints of the dominant objectives of capitalism.

This volume of lectures on aesthetics, given by Adorno in the winter semester of –9, formed the foundation for his later Aesthetic Theory, widely regarded as one of his greatest works. The lectures cover a wide range of topics, from an intense analysis of the work of Georg Lukács to a sustained reflection on the theory of aesthetic experience, from an examination of works by Plato, Kant, Hegel.

The book proceeds through four main chapters that focus on four different dimensions of Adorno's thought: knowledge, history, culture, and art. The first chapter uses Adorno's aesthetic theory to re-read his interpretation of Kant's subject-object dynamic.

Aesthetic Theory and its content, and the adequacy of the English translation, this article is mainly devoted to an examination of the approach employed by Adorno in his 'philosophical interpretation' of art and art works, with particular emphasis on music.
