QUOTES BY THEODOR WIESENGRUND ADORNO
1)Intolerance of ambiguity is the mark of an authoritarian personality.
2) There are no more ideologies in the authentic sense of false consciousness, only advertisements for the world through its duplication and the provocative lie which does not seek belief but commands silence.
3)Once the last trace of emotion has been eradicated, nothing remains of thought but absolute tautology.
4)Culture is only true when implicitly critical, and the mind which forgets this revenges itself in the critics it breeds. Criticism is an indispensable element of culture.
5)Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
6)The Enlightenment has always aimed at liberating men from fear and establishing their sovereignty. Yet the fully enlightened earth radiates disaster triumphant.
