He studied at Frankfurt University, and in was a composition student of modernist composer Alban Berg. Teaching philosophy at Frankfurt University, he became associated with the Institute for Social Research, but after the Nazi rise to power in he left for England then the United States, where he began sociological research on popular music.
In Adorno returned to co-direct the re-established Institute for Social Research, becoming a leading member of the so-called Frankfurt School of contemporary Marxist philosophy.

Adorno was one of the foremost philosophers and social theorists of the post-war period. Crucial to the development of Critical Theory, his highly original and distinctive but often difficult writings not only advance questions of fundamental philosophical significance, but provide deep-reaching analyses of literature, art, music sociology and political theory.
In this comprehensive introduction, Brian OConnor explains Adornos philosophy for those coming to his work for the first time, through original new lines of interpretation. Beginning with an overview of Adornos life and key philosophical views and influences, which contextualizes the intellectual environment in which he worked, OConnor assesses the central elements of Adornos philosophy.

He carefully examines Adornos distinctive style of analysis and shows how much of his work is a critical response to the various forms of identity thinking that have underpinned the destructive forces of modernity. He goes on to discuss the main areas of Adornos philosophy: social theory, the philosophy of experience, metaphysics, morality and aesthetics; setting out detailed accounts of Adornos notions of the dialectic of Enlightenment, reification, totality, mediation, identity, nonidentity, experience, negative dialectics, immanence, freedom, autonomy, imitation and autonomy in art.
The final chapter considers Adornos philosophical legacy and importance today. Including a chronology, glossary, chapter summaries, and suggestions for further reading, Adorno is an ideal introduction to this demanding but important thinker, and essential reading for students of philosophy, literature, sociology and cultural studies.
