Minima Moralia

When I read this book from Theodor Adorno titled “Minima Moralia – Reflections from the Damaged Life” for the first time in the late 1970s, I found no real connection to this masterpiece. This was hardly possible for the youth of that time, who had only just conjured up the "68ers" and were now in the process of initiating a "spiritual and moral turn".

At the time, I quickly put this work, published in 1951, with its 153 aphorisms and short essays aside and only opened it again during my studies Theodor Adorno made aware.

And now I dare the second attempt at reading and have to realize that Adorno's Minima Moralia is much easier to read today than it was when I was young. I assume that this is not due to my own age, but rather to the fact that this work of Adorno's has sadly become very topical again.

And so I myself am curious to see where and how this work will be reflected in my weblog in the future?

There is no right life in the wrong one.
