Dialética do Esclarecimento by Theodor Adorno

By Theodor Adorno

"A expressão 'indústria cultural' foi empregada pela primeira vez nesse livro, saudado como um clássico desde sua publicação em 1947."
Jornal do Brasil

"Melancólico, pessimista, iluminista, duro, datado, perene. Inegavelmente um livro com a marca deste século 20."
Folha de S. Paulo

"Uma longa digressão sobre a história do pensamento, mostrando como a mitologia se transforma em filosofia e depois em ciência, como o progresso técnico vira regressão ideológica e, finalmente, como a cultura serve de base para a barbárie fascista."

Considerado como a pedra angular das ideias que tiveram por berço a Escola de Frankfurt, esse livro é uma crítica filosófica e psicológica de amplo espectro das categorias ocidentais da razão e da natureza, de Homero a Nietzsche.
