Summary/Abstract: Adorno thinks of the contemporary world as essentially false. So the problem of ethics consists in the question, if the just life is possible. Can one carry out a real just action? Are the just actions possible only as a process that does not transgress the limits of the thought? Adorno looks into the question of possibility of the relationship of freedom and necessity, of the reconciliation of general and particular interests. He acknowledges that the most precise field of the philosophy of morals was determined in Kantian theory and proposes to extend it. Adorno thinks that moral actions can not be considered as coming of the desisions of personal as solely the rational being. With the exception of the actions in such limited situations the just actions are possible as the critics of the false forms of life.
