Further Details
Abstract The aim of this paper is to present the Frankfurt School’s critique of mass culture. The authors particularly seek to demonstrate that critical theory provides a specific interpretation of Marxist philosophy, reinterprets some of its central economic and political notions such as production, distribution, fetishization, consumption and also attempts to illuminate the place and the role of culture industry within global culture. As a conclusion it is argued that the Frankfurt School’s approach, while it is still useful to social science programs, tends to be overlooked by social theorists.
