Description

The study of Theodor Adorno has largely ignored or dismissed the enigmatic and provocative moments in his writing on the body. Dialectics of the Body corrects this gap by arguing that Adorno's analysis of reified society emanates and returns to the body and that hope and desire are present throughout Adorno's philosophy.

Reviews

"Lisa Yun Lee's new scholarly study, Dialectics of the Body signals a welcome shift in the U.S. reception of this challenging theorist." -- Jamie Daniel, In These Times
