    Aesthetic Theory and Nonpropositional Truth Content in Adorno.Gerhard Richter - 2010 - In Language Without Soil: Adorno and Late Philosophical Modernity. Fordham University Press.
    This chapter offers a close reading of a passage from the literary and philosophical work Minima Moralia that enacts Theodor W. Adorno's radical concept of nonpropositional truth content in philosophical aesthetics after Auschwitz. Readers of Adorno's texts, especially those devoted to philosophical aesthetics, can hardly fail to be struck by their chiastic structure. The aesthetic theory that Adorno develops constitutes not only a theory of the aesthetic but also a theory that is itself aesthetic, hence a theory of literature that (...)

  3. Afterness: Figures of Following in Modern Thought and Aesthetics.Gerhard Richter - 2011 - Columbia University Press.
    Gerhard Richter's groundbreaking study argues that the concept of "afterness" is a key figure in the thought and aesthetics of modernity. It pursues questions such as: What does it mean for something to "follow" something else? Does that which follows mark a clear break with what came before it, or does it in fact tacitly perpetuate its predecessor as a consequence of its inevitable indebtedness to the terms and conditions of that from which it claims to have departed? Indeed, is (...)

    Benjamin's Ghosts: Interventions in Contemporary Literary and Cultural Theory.Gerhard Richter (ed.) - 2002 - Stanford University Press.
    Although Walter Benjamin's writings are considered to be among the most powerful theoretical enterprises of the twentieth century, his ideas are resistant to cooptation by the doctrines of various critical programs. These essays engage this resistance by examining the ghostly in Benjamin's work. The contributors show that the haunting truths Benjamin offers point towards new forms of responsibility. These truths reside in a figurative elsewhere, a ghostly space that his texts delimit but never fully inhabit, and these essays seek to (...)

    Language Without Soil: Adorno and Late Philosophical Modernity.Gerhard Richter (ed.) - 2010 - Fordham University Press.
    Theodor W. Adorno's multifaceted work has exerted a profound impact on far-ranging discourses and critical practices in late modernity. His analysis of the fate of art following its alleged end, of ethical imperatives "after Auschwitz," of the negative dialectic of myth and freedom from superstition, of the manipulation of consciousness by the unequal siblings of fascism and the culture industry, and of the narrowly-conceived concept of reason that has given rise to an unprecedented exploitation of nature and needless human suffering, (...)

    Troubled Origins: Accounting for Oneself.Gerhard Richter - 2021 - Derrida Today 14 (1):67-90.
    Even after the concept of ‘origin’ has been called into question, a troubling wish to speak of origins persists, especially in the narrative act of accounting for one's own origins in confessional discourse. Here, the self encounters the limits of its narratibility, even as it interrogates how, in the Nietzschean sense, it became what it is. This essay explores the question of troubled origins by placing Nietzsche's Ecce Homo: How One Becomes What One Is and Derrida's Monolingualism of the Other; (...)

    Sound Figures of Modernity: German Music and Philosophy.Jost Hermand & Gerhard Richter (eds.) - 2006 - University of Wisconsin Press.
    The rich conceptual and experiential relays between music and philosophy—echoes of what Theodor W. Adorno once called _Klangfiguren_, or "sound figures"—resonate with heightened intensity during the period of modernity that extends from early German Idealism to the Critical Theory of the Frankfurt School. This volume traces the political, historical, and philosophical trajectories of a specifically German tradition in which thinkers take recourse to music, both as an aesthetic practice and as the object of their speculative work. The contributors examine the (...)

    Think, Again: A Reply to Ulrich Plass.Gerhard Richter - 2009 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 2009 (148):170-172.
    In Mixed Opinions and Maxims Nietzsche offers sage advice on the topic of being misunderstood. He writes: “When one is misunderstood as a whole, it is impossible to remove completely a single misunderstanding. One has to realize this lest one waste superfluous energy on one's defense.” I shall bear this wisdom in mind as I respond to Ulrich Plass's review of recent scholarship on the work of Theodor W. Adorno (Telos 146, Spring 2009), which includes my book Thought-Images: Frankfurt School (...)

    The Debt of Inheritance Revisited: Heidegger's Mortgage, Derrida's Appraisal.Gerhard Richter - 2015 - Oxford Literary Review 37 (1):67-91.
    This essay revisits the question of inheritance, legacy and handing-down as it is developed in Heidegger's Being and Time. A careful reading especially of paragraphs 6 and 72–74 allows us to consider whether Heidegger's notion of inheritance might not be far more resistant to modes of premature closure—such as its apparent exclusion of das Erbe from the workings of Destruktion—than readers often have perceived it to be. In a second step, the discussion of Heidegger's inheritance opens onto some of Derrida's (...)
