By Theodor W. Adorno,Willis Domingo
Against Epistemology relies on a manuscript Adorno initially wrote in Oxford in 1934-37 in the course of his first years in exile and thus remodeled in Frankfurt in 1955-56. The textual content used to be written as a critique of Husserl’s phenomenology, however the critique of phenomenology is used because the celebration for a much wider critique of epistemology. Adorno defined this as a ‘metacritique’ which blends jointly the research of Husserl’s phenomenology because the such a lot complicated example of the decay of bourgeois idealism with an immanent critique of the tensions and contradictions inner to Husserl’s proposal. the result's a robust textual content which continues to be some of the most devastating evaluations of Husserl’s paintings ever written and which heralded some of the rules that experience turn into normal in modern philosophy.
