ZUIN, ANTÔNIO ÁLVARO SOARES. On the actuality of the concept of culture industry. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2001, vol.21, n.54, pp. 9-18. ISSN 1678-7110. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32622001000200002.

Adorno's concepts could give elements to resist against this process which forms debilitated individualities.
