Frankfurt u.a., Suhrkamp / Institute of Social Research / Kohlhammer etc., 1940 - c.1970. Octavo. 466 Seiten (alle drei Publikationen). Original Softcover. Sehr guter Erhaltungszustand aller Publikation. Karl Heinz Haag (* 17. Oktober 1924 in Höchst am Main † 14. April 2011 in Wiesbaden) war ein deutscher Philosoph. Nach dem Studium der Philosophie und Theologie an der von den Jesuiten getragenen Philosophisch-Theologischen Hochschule Sankt Georgen promovierte er 1951 bei dem aus dem Exil zurückgekehrten Max Horkheimer an der Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe-Universität in Frankfurt am Main mit einer Arbeit über Die Seinsdialektik bei Hegel und in der scholastischen Philosophie (veröffentlicht 2012). 1956 habilitierte er sich dort mit einer Arbeit über die neuere Ontologie. In den folgenden Jahren lehrte Haag zunächst als Privatdozent und später als außerplanmäßiger Professor in den klassischen Fächern der Philosophie. Seit 1972 widmete er sich ausschließlich der philosophischen Forschung. Karl Heinz Haag lebte in Frankfurt-Höchst. (Wikipedia) Theodor W. Adorno ( born Theodor Ludwig Wiesengrund; September 11, 1903 – August 6, 1969) was a German philosopher, sociologist, and composer known for his critical theory of society. He was a leading member of the Frankfurt School of critical theory, whose work has come to be associated with thinkers such as Ernst Bloch, Walter Benjamin, Max Horkheimer and Herbert Marcuse, for whom the works of Freud, Marx, and Hegel were essential to a critique of modern society. He is widely regarded as one of the 20th century's foremost thinkers on aesthetics and philosophy, as well as one of its preeminent essayists. As a critic of both fascism and what he called the culture industry, his writings—such as Dialectic of Enlightenment (1947), Minima Moralia (1951) and Negative Dialectics (1966)—strongly influenced the European New Left. Amidst the vogue enjoyed by existentialism and positivism in early 20th-century Europe, Adorno advanced a dialectical conception of natural history that critiqued the twin temptations of ontology and empiricism through studies of Kierkegaard and Husserl. As a classically trained pianist whose sympathies with the twelve-tone technique of Arnold Schoenberg resulted in his studying composition with Alban Berg of the Second Viennese School, Adorno's commitment to avant-garde music formed the backdrop of his subsequent writings and led to his collaboration with Thomas Mann on the latter's novel Doctor Faustus, while the two men lived in California as exiles during the Second World War. Working for the newly relocated Institute for Social Research, Adorno collaborated on influential studies of authoritarianism, antisemitism and propaganda that would later serve as models for sociological studies the Institute carried out in post-war Germany. Upon his return to Frankfurt, Adorno was involved with the reconstitution of German intellectual life through debates with Karl Popper on the limitations of positivist science, critiques of Heidegger's language of authenticity, writings on German responsibility for the Holocaust, and continued interventions into matters of public policy. As a writer of polemics in the tradition of Nietzsche and Karl Kraus, Adorno delivered scathing critiques of contemporary Western culture. Adorno's posthumously published Aesthetic Theory, which he planned to dedicate to Samuel Beckett, is the culmination of a lifelong commitment to modern art which attempts to revoke the "fatal separation" of feeling and understanding long demanded by the history of philosophy and explode the privilege aesthetics accords to content over form and contemplation over immersion.

        The Great Dictator (Original Film Program)

      Los Angeles: United Artists, 1940. Original American program for the 1940 film, with original illustrations by Al Hirschfeld. For his follow-up to the classic "Modern Times," Chaplin chose to do what only a handful of other films dared to do in 1940--make fun of Hitler. Though several of Chaplin's films prior to this had music and sound effects, and while Chaplin had sung briefly in "Modern Times," "The Great Dictator" marked the first time he spoke dialogue onscreen. 9 x 12 inches, 16 pages, full color, saddle-stitched card stock. Very Good plus, with light wear at the wrapper edges, though no tearing or loss. Criterion Collection 565.

        Photo Album]: "Why Visit the New England States?"

      New England 1940 - Oblong folio. Measuring 11.5" x 15". String-tied cloth over paper boards with stamped decorations and "Photographs" stamped on the front board. Contains 82 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2.75" x 4.5" and 4.5" x 6", with captions. Very good album with some age-toning and edgewear with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by three men, Charles A. Zeiler, Henry P. Pollinger, and August Lipanovich, who referred to themselves as "the three mosquitos," while traveling in New England in 1940. The album appears to have been compiled as a school assignment and is titled "Why Visit the New England States?" The album begins with pictorial postcards of the White Mountains with captions reading "scenic view of New Hampshire" and "sunset on the White Mountains." The photos and postcards are heavily captioned and detail the trip from beginning to end. One photo reads, "our trip almost ended the first day. We got stuck in the mud. Henry and Charlie pushed Augie out of the soup. The road was in Pennsylvania of course." They visited all the highlights they could think of between Pennsylvania and Maine including Plymouth Rock, Mount Washington, and "the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon." One photo reads, "Pennsylvania's Grand Canyon had nothing on the Delaware Water Gap also in the Keystone State. This picture was taken from the highway looking up the gap." They also photographed tourists throughout their travels with one candid photo reading "girl scouts at Plymouth Rock. They refused to let us take their picture so we snapped it when they were not looking. The fact that they had on shorts had nothing to do with our wanting their picture." The men visit waterfalls, hike up mountains, and visit historic sites with a photo reading, "a waterfall above Buttermilk Falls near Ithaca, New York. We all went over the lower rapids in a barrel." A photo taken in the White Mountains reads, "the top of the White Mountains was literally full of rocks. In fact the path was marked by rocks formed into a small pile. Here Henry sighs for new worlds to conquer." One photo of two of the party reads, "the boys look happy on this picture for some reason or other. In the foreground one sees the one and only worm with Sir Malcolm Lipanovich in the rear. Why has Sir Malcolm such a sly grin on the face." The final page includes business cards and tickets from throughout their trip. The album concludes with a handwritten account of their favorite attractions and a list of "things we should never do" which included such advice as "never shoot off fireworks at Old Orchard Beach, Maine," "never try to steal Plymouth Rock," and never run over a skunk with a new car."A pleasing and heavily captioned photo album detailing a trip from Pennsylvania to Maine.
