In this episode, I continue and finish my presentation of Theodor Adorno's "The Culture Industry." Some of the key takeaways from this half include Adorno's appropriation of Freud's theories to understand the rise of Fascism; Adorno's critique of Benjamin; and Adorno's faith in theory as a form of praxis.
