Mass Culture:  Essay on Theories. Origins

Abstract. The article starts a series of publications on the theory of mass culture. Despite numerous research investigations dedicated to mass culture, there is no systematization of concepts and approaches, diachronic analysis, reflecting changes in investigators’ attitude towards popular culture. The series is aimed at tracking the development of theories of mass culture from their rise in the 20th century to nowadays. In the first part the author focuses on the concepts of cultural modernism and the Frankfurt school, some of their statements being still popular today.

Key words. Mass culture, popular culture, theory, criticism, cultural modernism, industry of culture, consumerism, standardization.
