Summary

Adorno warns of the catastrophe that may result if we continue to treat nature as an object that exists exclusively for our own benefit. A comparison of Adorno's concerns with those of key ecological theorists - social ecologist Murray Bookchin, ecofeminist Carolyn Merchant, and deep ecologist Arne Naess - reveals how Adorno speaks directly to many of today's most pressing environmental issues. Ending with a discussion of the philosophical conundrum of unity in diversity, Adorno on Nature also explores how social solidarity can be promoted as a necessary means of confronting environmental problems. Contents: Introduction; 1. Critical Materialism; 2. Nature, Red in Tooth and Claw; 3. Though Thinking Itself; 4. Adorno's Endgame; 5. Adorno and Radical Ecology; Conclusion
