A difficult but worthwhile book, Dialectic of Enlightenment is unavoidable reading for anyone interested in modern social theory and critique, and in the heritage of the Enlightenment. Adorno and Horkheimer engage significantly with myth and epic (particularly--almost exclusively, in fact--the Odyssey), the works of the Marquis de Sade, and Nietzsche. The book finishes with some notes/drafts which are also very interesting, and helpful for working out the role A&H see for philosophy, "thought," critique, and politics; also some worthwhile reflections on the animal/human distinction.
