MORGAN, Alastair (2014). Mere life, damaged life and ephemeral life: adorno and the concept of life. Angelaki-journal of the theoretical humanities, 19 (1), 113-127.Full text not available from this repository.
This paper analyses three concepts of life in Adorno's philosophy and considers the relationship between these concepts and the idea of a speculative materialism. The paper is concerned with Adorno's late concept of metaphysical experience and articulates a response to two key problems for the interpretation of this concept. First, given Adorno's emphasis on a purely negative philosophy, how does transcendence arise? Second, how can we give an experiential content to this idea of transcendence? A response to these two questions is configured through an analysis of three concepts of life; mere life, damaged life and ephemeral life.
