Adorno on Beckett and the Deformed Subject

13 04 2007

I got an e-mail from Mr Gridneff, don;t read, with a link to this video on YouTube

and so came to this video of Adorno on Beckett and the Deformed Subject

Adorno is saying…

…immer von Beckett ist eine technische Reduktion bis zum außersten
…always from Beckett is a technical reduction to the extreme
Aber diese Reduktiion ist ja wirklich das was die Welt aus uns macht
…das heißt die Welt aus uns gemacht diese Stümpfe von Menschen
also diese Menschen die eigentlich ihr ihr ich verloren haben
but this reduction is really what the world makes out of us
…that is the world [has] made out of us these stumps of men

so these men who have actually lost their their I
die sind wirklich die Produkte der Welt in welche wir leben
who are really the products of the world in which we live
