Philosophy and Social Criticism 26 (5):62-80 (2000)
The Anglo-American reception of Adorno has secularized his thought and thus missed its normative basis. In this article, the 'constella-tion', a central feature of Adorno's philosophy, is traced to Hermann Cohen's anti-immanentist notion of 'Korrelation' and to Benjamin's attempt to discover a radically Kantian and adamantly Jewish ontology and concept of the truth. Adorno's works are shown to limn a critical measure for being and for reason, based on a very un-Hegelian refusal of immanence and on a commitment to a regulative, if not constative, principle of redemption. Key Words: Theodor W. Adorno Walter Benjamin Hermann Cohen critical theory neo-Kantianism ontology redemption truth.
