BASTOS, Rogério Lustosa. Marcuse and the one-dimensional man: one-dimensional thinking in the State and institutions. Rev. katálysis [online]. 2014, vol.17, n.1, pp.111-119. ISSN 1982-0259.

This article, based on Marcuse, criticizes the current movement of globalization and its sustenance of a model considered consensual to market values, the one-dimensional man. This, with the intention of being the sole form of thinking, establishes itself not only by determining the concrete and subjective conditions for everyone, but also by reproducing them through the State, notably, through social institutions that, by presenting themselves as part of a hegemonic network tend to reproduce this one dimensionality throughout the planet. Under times of near absolute consensus in support of these values, the article reflects on possible breaks in this model. '

Keywords : Capitalist subjectivity; One-dimensional man; Institutional network.
