Goehr's talk explores the dangers of political and aesthetic devotion/enthusiasm/fan and mob mentality: highly relevant themes for us today. It will engage Adorno’s social theory of the aesthetic and aesthetic theory of society. But it will also ask how to read Adorno through dissonant musical motifs as he read Bach.
