Philosopher Theodor Adorno born as Theodor Ludwig Wiesengrund dies of heart palpitations after climbing a 3000m mountain against advice by his doctor at the age of 66 in Visp, Valais, Switzerland.

Adorno was convinced that recent attacks by students were directed against his theories as well as his person and he feared that the current political situation may lead to totalitarianism.
