DUPAS, Gilberto. O mito do progresso. Novos estud. - CEBRAP [online]. 2007, n.77, pp. 73-89. ISSN 1980-5403. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-33002007000100005.
Progress is a myth renewed by an ideological apparatus whose effort is to persuade that history has a glorious fate. The article analyzes who is favored by progress, the risks to society, environment and for humankind as a hole. It also tries to point out elements to the deconstruction of hegemonic discourse about globalization.
Keywords : progress; technology; information; globalization.
