Th.W. Adorno on Dialectic - Dictionary of Arguments

Grenz I 14
Dialectic/Adorno/Grenz: the process breaks into an expressive (physiognomic) and a certain (negating) part.
Grenz I 50
Dialectic/double negation/PopperVsDialectic/Adorno/Grenz: Adorno agrees with Popper's dialectic criticism: the equating of the negation of the negation with the positivity is the quintessence of the identification and thus of the reification.
>Dialectic, >K.R. Popper.
Grenz I 75

b) Dialectic of natural history: unity of nature and history. This has objective character in the sense of reality...
I 76
...of the existing.
>History/Adorno, >Cognition, >Recognition/Adorno, >Theory of Knowledge/Adorno.
I Grenz 103
Dialectic at a standstill/Benjamin/Grenz: Thesis: in cultural phenomena, the dialectic of natural history stands still for us in a double sense: neither are 'structures' dynamical as something produced from preceeding structures or producing new structures, nor can the dynamism...
I 104
...of the development of the productive forces be gained from it. What can be deciphered in them is solely the difference between possibility and reality.

XIII 40f
Mediation/Dialectic/Adorno: the possibility, in the face of the antithetical concepts, to come to a real thought at all (e.g., empiricism/rationalism, idealism/realism) is to be sought in that way by going into these concepts onself, and to find their opposite in them oneself, instead of making up mediating worldviews between them, such as the so-called critical realism.
>Thinking/Adorno, >Concepts/Adorno.
