Quote of the Day: Adorno Series (3)

"The human is indissolubly linked with imitation: a human being only becomes human at all by imitating other human beings. Not only is the self entwined in society; it owes society its existence in the most literal sense."
Theodor Adorno (1903-69)

[But then this is also the man who claimed that "He who integrates is lost".]
