MetadataShow full item record
The Authoritarian Personality (written by Adorno and other researchers at the University of Berkeley, California) is the first volume in the Studies in Prejudice series, sponsored by the American Jewish Committee (AJC) and edited by Max Horkheimer and Samuel Flowerman. This qualitative and quantitative research traces the origins of prejudice and fascism in liberal democratic societies. Drawing on its finding of socially formed personality traits and tendencies, however, more prone to fascist and undemocratic discourse, the present study seeks to adapt categories of The Authoritarian Personality to pedagogical relations in the classroom to address the question: of whether there are traces of an authoritarian or fascist character in the teacher-student relationship, according to The Authoritarian Personality; and to what extent these traits are found in the digital culture. Although the history of teacher/student violence is amply documented in the literature, the question remains whether such authoritarian practices can be understood from an analysis based on the aforementioned adapted categories and whether specific traits of an authoritarian or fascist character are intensified in the digital culture.
