Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses aspects of dialectics crucial to Hegel and Marx, and in some ways to Adorno. Hence, it is necessary in this discussion to maintain some sense of the place of the individual, the alienated object of capitalism, in order to provide the space for its becoming the self-conscious subject of history. Implicitly referring to Hegelian potentiality and certainly reflecting his argument about identity and concepts, Adorno focuses on the object's immanent character. Dialectics is movement. This is central to Hegel's Science of Logic in his discussion of the first two concepts, being and nothing, which are given only a moment's distinction before vanishing into becoming. Two central elements of Marx's dialectics are relations and development. In specific domains of mediation, an individual or organization constitutes the intervening element of a relationship or process and is less complex than Marx's relation of production and consumption.
