how these practices are deformed through being forced to carry (nearly) the full
weight of ethical existence and ideality, that is, how the intimate sphere is
deformed by becoming a refuge for ethical life in general. While the intimate
sphere has more or better possibilities for ethical existence than does public life,
there is no sharp line to be drawn where one stops and the other starts, which the
fate of marriage and homes makes evident. Second, Adorno seeks to show how

We are not given a proto-history of myth here, but are rather presented with the
element of myth within the Enlightenment, an Enlightenment which for Adorno
and Horkheimer is nothing but “mythical fear radicalized” (DE 11). The mythical
rape of Persephone, state Adorno and Horkheimer, “was directly equated with
the dying of nature” (DE 20); the myth operates as allegory. Insofar as ... But, as
we saw in the chapter on Kant, for Adorno existence always exceeds the
knowledge of it.

... Adorno, “the existence and way of life of the Jews throw into question the
generality with which they do not conform.”28 According to the analysis of post-
Enlightenment anti-Semitism by the Frankfurt School, for fascist and nationalist
forces, “the mere existence of the other is a provocation.”29 Accordingly Jews, as
the main cultural signifier for this otherness, represented a “provocation” by their
mere existence to what the Frankfurt School identified as the “totality” of Western

Another is Adorno's conception of 'negative dialectics' which presents an
immanent critique of the positive or idealist dialectics of Hegel's philosophy, but
also of capitalism itself. Here the condition of possibility of positive dialectics is a
material and somatic force that can only ever be formally subsumed. A more or
less orthodox adherence to Marx's conception of subsumption is discernible here
. In this respect, the contrasts between Adorno and Negri are striking. Negri
departs radically ...

Adorno: existence in the world is determined by commercial considerations;
things are judged solely in terms of their utility; anything which cannot be turned
into profit is seen as worthless. Art, however, in the contemplation of which our
rational and calculative powers are not engaged, can release us from this
mechanistic view of the world. The extent to which Adorno's understanding of art
derives from this Romantic account can be seen in his opposition to directly
political art.
