Adorno, Modernism and Mass Culture: Essays on Critical Theory and Music
In examining the work of Theodor Adorno, this collection of essays focuses on the German philosopher's ideas in the field of musicology. Though it addresses complex theories, this inquiry maintains a lucid style, describing the nuances of Adorno's thought while not relying on a great deal of prior knowledge to shed light on his contributions to music theory. Included is a discussion of the applicability of Adorno's ideas to popular music and an assessment of Adorno's continuing relevance in light of other commentaries.
