THEODOR ADORNO (1903-1969) was a sociologist, philosopher, and musicologist. MAX HORKHEIMER (1895-1973) was a philosopher and sociologist. They were both key early members of the Frankfurt Institute for Social Research and together they wrote the classic Dialectic of Enlightenment.
"Much of their interesting conversation about work, happiness,
leisure, and society is germane to our time."
