The problems of modernity: Adorno and Benjamin

New York: Routledge (1991)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Theodor Adorno and Walter Benjamin have emerged as figures of great importance in the current debates about modernity. The central and privileged place of the philosophical problem of modernity has been threatened by the possibility advanced by Jean-François Lyotard that modernity as a project is over and the new concern is the postmodern. The work of Adorno and Benjamin is the background against which the problems of modernity and postmodernity are addressed in this volume. This collection brings together some of the most innovative academics working in the area of European radical philosophy. Issues covered range from art, literature and music to feminism and Judaism.
