About

In 1948 Theodor W. Adorno wrote a text on the authoritarian personality which remained unpublished until today and that is not so much a retrospective look at the barbarism of the Nazis but first and foremost and more generally a reflection on the individual in late capitalism that is forced into immaturity but that also seems to choose it. He discusses the dialectics of Enlightenment and the significance of antisemitism for Critical Theory with particular intensity – issues, that is, that have not lost any of their topicality in light of the current crisis of the political. Next to the »Remarks«, published for the first time, this volume contains further key texts on the authoritarian personality and on public opinion. The introduction and the afterword by the editor explain the context of their creation and draw connections to current debates.
