About the Author

Max Paddison is Professor of Music at the University of Durham, UK. His book, Adorno's Aesthetics of Music, was the first full-length study of Adorno's philosophy and sociology in English. Adorno, Modernism and Mass Culture, now in its second edition, extends and develops themes raised in that book. Max Paddison has also published widely on the philiosophy and sociology of nineteenth- and twentieth-century music, the avant-garde and rock music. He is co-editor (with Irene Deliege) of the book Musique Contemporaine: Perspectives Theoretiques et Philosophiques to which he has also contributed chapters on Adorno and issues in contemporary music and postmodernism.


"Paddison has assembled an accessible and timely collection of reflections on Adorno's aesthetics of music in service of showing just how it might compose a framework for the present critical interpretation of culture." - Tom Huhn, Professor of Philosophy, British Journal of Aesthetics.; "...a briliant piece of work..." Charles Rosen, The New York Review of Books
