«Gay Science» and «Sad Science». Nietzsche’s and Adorno’s Short Prose Form

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Nietzsche; Adorno; Short Prose Form; Aphorism; Dialectics.

The article examines the influence of Nietzsche’s aphoristic writing on the thought and the style of Th.W. Adorno and especially on his “Minima Moraliaµ. Notably, the critique of philosophical systems and the short prose poetics have been very important for the developing of Adorno’s own short prose style, in spite of all differences in the philosophical approach, particularly Nietzsche’s non-dialectical versus Adorno’s deeply dialectical thinking. In the last part the article analyses some specific rhetorical and stylistic features of the short prose of these two thinkers.
