German philosopher and music critic Theodor Adorno.

Theodor Adorno

(1903 - 1969)

A year after completing his PhD thesis on Edmund Husserl, Theodor Adorno in 1925 studied music with the avant-garde composer Alban Berg, whom he later championed in his early publications. He befriended Max Horkheimer in the early 1930s, becoming associated with the Frankfurt Institute, and later emerged as one of the leading members of the “Frankfurt School” of critical theory, along with Erich Fromm, Herbert Marcuse, and Walter Benjamin.
