Thursday, 14 March 2013 thought can't be bought...

A bit from Zygmunt Bauman (this one) describing Adorno's attitude to the value of thought
The less a thought can be explained in terms familiar to and making sense to the men and women immersed in their daily pursuit of survival, the nearer it comes to the standards of humanity; the less it can be justified in terms of tangible gains and uses or the price-tag attached to it in the superstore or at stock exchange, the higher its humanizing worth. It is the active search for market value, and the urge for immediate consumption , that threaten the genuine value of thought.
