Description

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.

Author Biography

Max Paddison is Professor of Music at the University of Durham, UK. His book, Adorno's Aesthetics of Music, was the first full-length study of Adorno's philosophy and sociology in English. Adorno, Modernism and Mass Culture, now in its second edition, extends and develops themes raised in that book. Max Paddison has also published widely on the philiosophy and sociology of nineteenth- and twentieth-century music, the avant-garde and rock music. He is co-editor (with Irene Deliege) of the book Musique Contemporaine: Perspectives Theoretiques et Philosophiques to which he has also contributed chapters on Adorno and issues in contemporary music and postmodernism.
