Metaphysics after Auschwitz: Adorno's Negative Dialectics

ICT5763HF  L0101
Offered in Fall 2009  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

No serious philosopher after Kant has been able to avoid his critique of metaphysical speculations about God, the soul, and the meaning of existence. The horrors of recent history give added urgency to such questions. Theodor W. Adorno has posed these issues in dramatic and decisive ways. This seminar studies his reflections in Negative Dialectics on the status of metaphysics "after Auschwitz."
