It displays the unusual combination of intellectual depth, scope, and philosophical rigor that Adorno was able to bring to his subjects, whether he was writing about astrology columns in Los Angeles newspapers, the special problems of German academics immigrating to the United States during the Nazi years, or Hegels influence on Marx.In these essays, Adorno explores a variety of topics, ranging from Aldous Huxleys Brave New World and Kafkas The Castle to Jazz, Bach, Schoenberg, Proust, Veblens theory of conspicuous consumption, museums, Spengler, and more.

His writing throughout is knowledgeable, witty, and at times archly opinionated, but revealing a sensitivity to the political, cultural, economic, and aesthetic connections that lie beneath the surfaces of everyday life.Theodor W. Adorno (1903-1969) was a student of philosophy, musicology, psychology, and sociology at Frankfurt where he later became Professor of Philosophy and Sociology and Co-Director of the Frankfurt School.

During the war years he lived in Oxford, in New York, and in Los Angeles, continuing to produce numerous books on music, literature, and culture.Prisms is included in the series, Studies in Contemporary German Social Thought, edited by Thomas McCarthy.
