Roman Berger is not only a composer but also a philosopher and sociologist. His literary work is not only a marginal or supplementary concern; it is as important as his compositional work and even more, these two fields of his work are narrowly interconnected. In the first place, Berger in his texts expresses his existential needs. However, it is not only a statement of a composer about the starting points of his creation, but it is also a statement of a reformer of society, who is asking where the contemporary culture is facing and where it should be facing. The problems of the influence of the media as an important bearer of cultural information are also closely associated with it. The aim of this study is to name the most essential problems, which Berger deals with and submit their solution to a critical evaluation, particularly by means of confrontation with other contemporary thinkers.
