IL negativo in questione. Una lettura di Adorno

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Adorno’s critique of Hegel goes beyond the terms of a facile opposition between a positiveand reconciled formula of dialectics and a negative version that insists on unresolved conflict.It should not be simplistically placed under the sign of reiteration of the negative. On the contrary,one could say that what is damaged by Adorno’s philosophical proposal is precisely the negative in aradical sense affecting the fate of dialectics tout court. his is because the deeper meaning of Adorno’sreference to the non-identical appears, precisely, as an instance of suppression of dialectical thinkingas such. hat is to say, the non-identical can reveal its face only to a gaze that, paradoxically, does notconsider it mainly from the point of view of negation.
