By Fabian Freyenhagen

Adorno notoriously asserted that there's no 'right' existence in our present social international. This statement has contributed to the frequent conception that his philosophy has no useful import or coherent ethics, and he's frequently accused of being too destructive. Fabian Freyenhagen reconstructs and defends Adorno's sensible philosophy based on those fees. He argues that Adorno's deep pessimism concerning the modern social international is coupled with a robust optimism approximately human strength, and that this optimism explains his adverse perspectives in regards to the social global, and his call for that we face up to and alter it. He exhibits that Adorno holds a substantial ethics, albeit one who is minimalist and according to a pluralist notion of the undesirable - a consultant for dwelling much less wrongly. His incisive research does a lot to improve our realizing of Adorno, and can also be a massive intervention into present debates in ethical philosophy.
