Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms relevant ot the discussion on the Hegelian-Marxist criticism of Adorno discussed in this book In the Hotel Abyss: An Hegelian-Marxist Critique of Adorno. The development of class consciousness requires the expansion of thought, and Marxists have anticipated that thought will be advanced dialectically through its objectification in the efforts of individual development, class organization and class struggle. The orientation to a desired audience and his long-standing deprecation of the working class as a possible agent against capitalism requires a closer examination of some of his writings that shed light on his attitude toward the group which, for Adorno, had even lost its status as a class and had become merely 'the masses'.

Keywords: Adorno; capitalism; Marxists
