Contradiction/Thinking/Adorno: Very often, a thought is not refuted by its contradictions, but the contradictions are precisely its truth. In the contradictions this is evident in the thing itself, on what the thinking is aimed at which is not exhausted in the logicalness. The most convenient and naive, namely always a form originating from our habits of thinking, to practice criticism on philosophies, fixes them on so-called contradictions.
It is necessary to consider very carefully whether we are concerned with inconsistencies of thought, or merely with intellectual contradictions, or whether in these contradictions the inadequacy of such a theorem to reality, or even of contradictions within the structure of the thing itself are shown.
