Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In the history of sociology in Austria, Austrofascism and National Socialism marked a division: Whereas sociologists forced into exile spent much time analyzing forms of authoritarianism, an authoritarian sociology was established on Austrian universities. The seminar firstly focuses on the relationship of sociology and National Socialism, secondly on the studies on the authoritarian personality and its precursor projects in Vienna, and thirdly on the question of what a critical analysis of the past can teach us for a reflexive, non-authoritarian sociology today.
