As for the longer term, the process occasions used to be to stay open-ended; rather than finality, he remained devoted to a Hölderlin-like openness. This hint of the messianic has what he known as the color of the concrete rather than mere summary threat.

Early within the Nineteen Sixties Adorno gave 4 classes of lectures at the highway resulting in destructive Dialectics, his magnum opus of 1966. the second one of those used to be focused on the subjects of historical past and freedom. when it comes to content material, those lectures represented an early model of the chapters in damaging Dialectics dedicated to Kant and Hegel.
