Steven Helmling is centrally concerned about Adorno's notoriously tricky writing, a function such a lot commentators recognize in simple terms to set it apart as a way to an expository account of 'what Adorno is saying'. in contrast, Adorno's advanced writing is the vital concentration of this research, including precise research of Adorno's most intricate texts, specifically his most renowned and complex paintings, co-authored with Max Horkheimer, Dialectic of Enlightenment.
