ABSTRACT:

“Theodor W. Adorno – Ethics as First Philosophy” 

According to one prevailing line of interpretation, Adorno’ s philosophy has a theological core. According to another line, his thought culminates in his aesthetics. Against these interpretations the talk aims to reveal the ethical core of Adorno’s whole philosophy. The positive reference point of his critique of the suffering the unjust society causes, is a hedonist ethics that goes back to Aristippus of Kyrene.
