This is a reminder for:

Title: Peter Gordon, Amabel B. James Professor of History, and Faculty  
Affiliate, Department of Philosophy, Harvard University
"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.
