  1. Music as Secularized Prayer: On Adorno’s Benjaminian Understanding of Music and its Language-Character.Mattias Martinson - 2018 - Comparative and Continental Philosophy 10 (3):205-220.
    ABSTRACTIn this essay I draw attention to conceptual similarities in Walter Benjamin’s and Theodor W. Adorno’s reflection about language, with special attention to Benjamin’s 1916 essay about language as such, including its theological impulses. In Adorno’s case, I concentrate on language theory as it comes forth in relation to his philosophy of music and the supposed language-character of music. I argue that this particular connection between Benjamin and Adorno is largely unexplored in the literature, and I show that their conceptual (...)

  • La redención del pasado. Sobre un motivo central del pensamiento de Walter Benjamin.José Luis Delgado - 2016 - Anales Del Seminario de Historia de la Filosofía 33 (1):227-252.

  • Doctrine and Tradition in the Early Thought of W. Benjamin: A Neglected Chapter in the Study of Benjamin's Reception of I. Kant.Florencia Abadi - 2013 - Ideas Y Valores 62 (152):159-181.
    The article examines the meaning of the concepts of "doctrine" and "tradition" in Walter Benjamin's 1917 reflections, concepts that are closely linked to his reception of Kant. Given the scarce analysis of this appropriation, the paper seeks to show that these concepts express an interest in Kant's idea of the systematic unity of knowledge and that Benjamin reinterprets such unity in Messianic terms, that is, not as a necessary assumption, but as a demand for redemption. Finally, it shows how these (...)
