Anglo-American cultural Studies
- The complex relation between culture, freedom, and power
- Mass culture
The notion has been widely called into questions by authors. Some have denounced a failure of the Enlightenment process, through historic changes and social evolutions. And yet, I am personally convinced that Enlightenment remains as an ideal for current societies, with the purpose of making men really free. The real problem, as we are going to show it, comes therefore from the application of the Enlightenment process within the society. That's why we have to study the interconnections existing between culture, power and freedom. Will the concept of Enlightenment always remain as an ideal? How culture and the control of the culture's production are determinant factors to Enlightenment's failure or success?
