Towards a New Manifesto

Автор: Theodor Adorno

Короткое описание книги

A fascinating dialogue on a new Communist Manifesto from two giants of twentieth century philosophy.

A thrilling example of philosophy in action, Towards a New Manifesto reveals the fathers of critical theory, Adorno and Horkheimer, in a uniquely spirited and free-flowing exchange of ideas.

A record of their discussions over three weeks in the spring of 1956, recorded with a view to writing a contemporary version of The Communist Manifesto, this conversation ranges across its central themes-theory and practice, labor and leisure, domination and freedom-in a register found nowhere else in their work.

Amid a careening flux of arguments, aphorisms and asides, in which the trenchant alternates with the reckless, positions are swapped and contradictions unheeded resulting in a thrilling example of philosophy in action and a compelling map of a possible passage to a new world.
