PUCCI, Bruno. Philosophy and music in the "bildung" of Adorno. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2003, vol.24, n.83, pp.377-389. ISSN 0101-7330. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-73302003000200003.
This paper goes into the biography and writings of Theodor Adorno to detect the relevance of his statement: "I studied philosophy and music. Instead of deciding for one or the other, I always had the impression that I pursued the same thing in both". It thereby attempts to show how the ongoing dialectical relationship between music and philosophy was fruitful for both his scientific and educational upbringing, and the constitution of his original philosophical thought.
Keywords : Critical theory and education; Negative dialectics; Music and philosophy; Aesthetic theory.
