Buck-Morss convincingly In her important introductory chapter, Susan . Amazingly lucid and interesting explanatory work.

Buck-Morss convincingly In her important introductory chapter, Susan Buck-Morss rightly stresses the significance of Critical Theory for young West German intellectuals after World War I. All other books on Adorno have been laborious and lacked the clarity of understanding that Susan Buck-Morss brings to bear on her subject.

Negative Dialectics (German: Negative Dialektik) is a 1966 book by the philosopher Theodor W. Adorno. Adorno sought to update the philosophical process known as the dialectic, freeing it from traits previously attributed to it that he believed to be fictive. For Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, the dialectic was a process of realization that things contain their own negation and through this realization the parts are sublated into something greater.

In this path-breaking work, Susan Buck-Morss draws new connections between history, inequality, social conflict, and human emancipation. Hegel, Haiti, and Universal History offers a fundamental reinterpretation of Hegel's master-slave dialectic and points to a way forward to free critical theoretical practice from the prison-house of its own debates. Historicizing the thought of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and the actions taken in the Haitian Revolution, Buck-Morss examines the startling connections between the two and challenges us to widen the boundaries of our historical imagination.

Buck-Morss is a lucid and passionate guide to the difficult work of Adorno and Benjamin. This is not to say that she presents their work in an easily digestible form. Indeed, Buck-Morss's clarity makes readers appreciate how much they must be aware of to understand what Adorno and Benjamin were up to. Buck-Morss's valuable discussions of Kant, Hegel, Lukacs, Horkheimer, Schoenberg, and others, make plain that there is no easy introduction to these figures, as fascinating as their ideas may be.
This book's most important contribution to the English-language literature on critical theory is its exposition of Adorno's debts to Benjamin, despite their disagreements. It's hard to imagine what Adorno's body of work would have looked like without his relationship with Benjamin. If there is a limitation here it is Buck-Morss's apparent (but not uncritical) preference for Adorno to Benjamin that belies her later appreciation for Benjamin in The Dialectics of Seeing and Dreamworld and Catastrophe. This work is steeped in cultural history, biographical detail, and philosophy, so if you find critical theory seductive but somewhat hellish, Buck-Morss is your Vergil.
This is an inspired work of scholarship that is inexplicably difficult to find. Now that Amazon.com has a few copies, buy yours now. Whether you're a novice or a scholar, it will really make you appreciate the poverty of contemporary American scholarship on Adorno and Benjamin.

...book on Adorno I have ever read (and I've read dozens of the ones available in English). Buck-Morss excels at presenting complicated ideas in straightforward and careful prose that refuses to get mired in insider knowledge or lengthy digressions. An excellent example of just the right measure of insight, scholarship (the endnotes are a treasure-trove in and of themselves!), and unpretentious intellect.

If you have any interest in Adorno this is a must-read.

one of the best books on history of thought and indisputably the best one on frankfurt school.
