'''''Negative Dialectics''''' is a 1966 book by [[Theodor W. Adorno]] (first translated into English in 1973) and is considered to be his magnum opus. In the book, Adorno challenges the metaphysics of [[Immanuel Kant|Kant]], [[Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel|Hegel]], and [[Martin Heidegger|Heidegger]], while simultaneously building his ideas towards emancipation from the capitalist order. A notoriously difficult work, in particular for English readers who have had at their disposal a translation known for its inaccuracies. This issue has been ameliorated by Dennis Redmond, who has posted online a translation of the text (see below). Additionally, noted translator Robert Hullot-Kentor (who re-translated Adorno's ''[[Aesthetic Theory]]'') is at work on a new version, to be published by the University of Minnesota Press.
