Abstract

MUSSE, Ricardo. Individual experience and objectivity in Minima moralia. Tempo soc. [online]. 2011, vol.23, n.1, pp. 169-177. ISSN 0103-2070.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-20702011000100008.

Written in the period between the drafting and final publication of Dialectic of Enlightenment, the 153 aphorisms of Adorno's Minima moralia can be described, like the work co-authored with Horkheimer, as an investigation into the causes that led humanity to sink "into a new kind of barbarism." However, in Minima moralia this question is examined from a highly singular perspective and methodology. Adorno proposes nothing less then the translation of individual and subjective experience into a universal and objective form of knowledge.

Keywords : Theodor Adorno; Minima moralia ; Dialectic of Enlightenment; Critical theory.
