Prisms, essays in cultural criticism and society, is the work of a critic and scholar who has had a marked influence on contemporary American and German thought. It displays the unusual combination of intellectual depth, scope, and philosophical rigor that Adorno was able to bring to his subjects, whether he was writing about astrology columns in Los Angeles newspapers, the special problems of German academics immigrating to the United States during the Nazi years, or Hegel's influence on Marx.

His writing throughout is knowledgeable, witty, and at times archly opinionated, but revealing a sensitivity to the political, cultural, economic, and aesthetic connections that lie beneath the surfaces of everyday life. Co-director of the Frankfurt School in pre-war Germany, Adorno is one of those pivotal intellectual figures—along with Max Horkheimer and Herbert Marcuse—from whom much leftist cultural criticism is directly derived The titular description, 'prisms,' suits Adorno—a major thinker of facets and angles and revolutions—and the collection itself is an ideal introduction to his work.

Theodor Adorno was an inspiration to, and teacher of, some notably original thinkers of several generations and countries, but he is one of those academic writers whose work might be forgotten now that he is dead.

This extraordinary book can make us smarter, more reflective and critical. Prisms signifies light and the fragmentation of light into sharp, scintillating bits. A fair image of Adorno's method. An unsparing pressure of intelligence marks his critical writings. But also an intense, edgy concern for values. Theodor W. William Rehg. James Bohman. Search Search.

Theodor W. 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 s he was the most prominent challenger to both Sir Karl Popper's philosophy of science and Martin Heidegger's philosophy of existence. The scope of Adorno's influence stems from the interdisciplinary character of his research and of the Frankfurt School to which he belonged. It also stems from the thoroughness with which he examined Western philosophical traditions, especially from Kant onward, and the radicalness to his critique of contemporary Western society. He was a seminal social philosopher and a leading member of the first generation of Critical Theory.
