Critical Models: Interventions and Catchwords
Columbia University Press, Aug 12, 1999 - Philosophy - 404 pages
The two collections combined in this volume -- "Interventions: Nine Critical Models" (1963) and "Catchwords: Critical Models II" (1969) -- are passionate examples of Adorno's postwar commitment to unmasking the culture that engendered Nazism and its antihumanist nightmare. Included here are Adorno's practical recommendations for reform in primary and higher education, his explanation for the enduring therapeutic value of psychoanalysis, and his appeal to raise public awareness of "propaganda tricks" that exploit prejudice and chauvinism.
