Adorno & Heidegger

I bought a book on Adorno when in Sydney--The Cambridge Companion to Adorno edited by Thomas Huhn. I was hoping that this text may help me to address the troubled relation between Heidegger and Adorno.

Despite their differences and conflict both seem to reflect on the philosophy of historical experience, push beyond the metaphysics of subjectivity, engage in a destruction of western metaphysics, were critics of liberal capitalist modernity, and reacted against the positivist philosophy of science that presupposed the reduction of language to the transparent medium of representation. Yet these commonalities are rarely mentioned.
