"Adorno's Changing Views of Kierkegaard"
Theodor Adorno, the philosopher and social theorist, devoted great energy
throughout his life to the interpretation of Kierkegaard's philosophy. In
this paper I reconstruct the history of Adorno's intellectual engagement
with Kierkegaard, from the early habilitation (first published in 1933) to
the more sympathetic reassessments of Adorno's later years. The chief task
of my paper is to explain what Adorno meant when he characterized his
habilitation on Kierkegaard as an exercise in "inverse theology," and,
furthermore, to explain why, much later, Adorno equated this species of
theology with materialism.
