Os pensadores da chamada Teoria Critica, mais especificamente Theodor W. Adorno
e Max Horkheimer, formularam o conceito de industria cultural na decada de 1940, na tentativa de explicar como a logica produtivista do capitalismo estava sendo aplicada a cultura, transformando os produtos artisticos em mercadorias culturais, cativando da arte, assim, seu carater de antitese social.
Among the topics are the migration of religious longing for the "Other" into the historical materialist critical theory of utopia in the thought of Theodor W. Adorno

The premise of the collection is that even if the personal relationship between Hannah Arendt and Theodor W. Adorno

The text begins with an introduction to Theodor W. Adorno
(1903-69) and key philosophical views and influences.
