Adorno, in his posthumous work Beethoven. Philosophy of music, grasps the deep relationship between music and dream: “we are in music, as well as we are in dream”. Music is the coming of a non-intentional truth, that is never caught by images and words. In the same way, dream follows the logic of a non-giudicatory synthesis and is incompatible with the category of dialectical totality: in dream, truth announces her-self as it fades out. According to Adorno, the dimension of opening typical to dream and music collides with the pretension of philosophical discourse that aims at the total revelation.
