The morality of thought lies in a procedure that is neither
entrenched nor detached, neither blind nor empty, neither
atomistic, nor consequential. . . . But how much more dif-
ficult has it become to conform to such morality now that it
is no longer possible to convince oneself of the identity of
subject and object. . . . Münchausen pulling himself out of
the bog by his pig-tail becomes the pattern of knowledge
which wishes to become more than either verification or
speculation.
—Theodor Adorno, Minima Moralia
CONCLUSION:
A TERRIBLE CARICATURE
