GUTIERREZ, Gustavo y ALMEIDA, Marco Bettine de. Culture and leisure: a habermasian approach. Lua Nova [online]. 2008, n.74, pp. 93-130. ISSN 1807-0175. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-64452008000200005.
The article presents a reflection about the relationship between culture and entertainment from a methodological reference supported by Habermas' categories. It adopts the prison, specifically the Detention House of Sao Bernardo in Sao Paulo State, as a practical reference as a site which has its own culture (Delinquent culture). It concludes showing how important the communicative interactions are, when typical of a spontaneous sociability found on leisure activities, as the categories presented by Kholberg and incorporated by Habermas, within the limits of a legal framework built from the original consensus of life world.
