SCHWEPPENHAUSER, Gerhard. The negative moral philosophy of Theodor W. Adorno. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2003, vol.24, n.83, pp. 391-415. ISSN 1678-4626. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-73302003000200004.
Although Adorno did not approach the issue of universalization in moral philosophy, some elements in his complete works allow us to think about it. My thesis is that, from his writings, we can study how the ambivalence of the normative rules can be integrated into a critical theory without losing their pretension to a critical-normative validity.
