Summary and Info
The Stars Down to Earth is the first collection of Theodor Adorno's key papers on the irrational and mass culture. The essays in The Stars Down To Earth offer an analysis of the irrational dimensions of modern culture which is both timely and disturbing in the 1990s, although they were written by Adorno half a century ago. Adorno's ideas are relevant to the understanding of phenomena as apparently diverse as astrology and ``New Age'' cults, the power of neo-fascist propaganda and the re-emergence of anti-Semitism, and the psychological basis of popular culture.
