À quel titre ? Adorno et « les Années Vingt »

Abstract : At the beginning of the 1960s Adorno writes a short article about “Les fameuses Années Vingt” (according to the expression-and the written form fixing the capital letters-which the French translation proposes to reading). At least therein lies what is immediately suggested by the promotion of the chrononym to the rank of a title. We would precisely try to show that the evidence is worth here merely in so far as it is fake. Moreover grounding our authority in what Adorno used to require from a “good title”, we will consider the promotion of the chrononym as the very means of ciphering the matter the content of which seems however written out in full. Overthrowing the unifying function pertaining to some “proper noun of time” this text, in a way all the more honed as it seems modestly occasional, would rather tell of, not only the discordances of times, but from an irreparable caesura, of the disappropriation off time.
