Abstract: This paper attempts to show, by means of arguments by Theodor W. Adorno, that Richard Rorty’s criticism of Moral Realism is not fully developed, and further, that Rorty himself proposes a naïve account, in which the ethnic group functions as an ultimate measure of moral judgment without any possibility of critique. By contrast Adorno offers a figure of thought by which, even without the assumption of a Moral Realism in the traditional sense, such a criticism is entirely possible. The paper will end with the consideration that Adorno’s philosophy can be described as a kind of enlightened Moral Realism.
