Like the aesthetics of Hegel and Heidegger, Adorno’s aesthetics also affirms the philosophical relevance of art. But the peculiarity of the Adornian comprehension of aesthetics is in his defending the separation art and philosophy and at the same times their permanent relationship. They are different but inseparable. Art is relevant to philosophical reflection, while philosophy needs the dialectic discovered in the artistic mimesis.
