The research project focuses on “Theodor Wiesengrund Adorno and the Idea of Natural History”. It aims to pursue a critical analysis of the concept of "natural history" in terms of its emergence in the philosophical debate of Weimar Republic and, in particular, in its thematization developed by Theodor W. Adorno. The purpose of the program is to investigate the idea of natural history as a central topic of the German philosophical debate about the concept of history - a debate whose chronological extension covers the decades between the end of 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. The aim of this research project is to put right to a current gap in the critical debate with a historical study of the concept of natural history.
