In analyses of Auto da Fe, Crowds and Power, and the aphorisms, the authors elucidate key aspects of Canetti's interrogation of human existence and human history across five thematic complexes: individual and social psychology, totalitarian politics, religion and politics, theories of society, and power and culture. They thus trace the movement of Canetti's thought from an apocalyptic sense of crisis to his search for cultural resources to set against the holocaust of European civilization."--BOOK JACKET.

This dissertation examines the interplay between rock crowds and power at American rock festivals from 1965 to the present. It focuses primarily on rock festivals that are held on repurposed land, that draw over 40,000, and that are literally or nominally free of charge. This project questions the utopian rhetoric that underpins these festivals and unpacks the disjunctive logic that causes audiences to take part in celebrations. Building on the assumption that these types of rock festivals are a postwar phenomenon born of advances in amplification technology and shaped by countercultural aims, it argues that the enormous longevity of this form of entertainment rests on three powerful appeals: sex, drugs, and nature, all three of which touch on American notions of liberty and freedom. But while these three ideas -- sexual liberty ("free love"), liberal drug use ("legalize pot!") and participating in nature as a regenerative idyll -- appeal to white male audiences, they serve to alienate audiences of color. This is doubly unfortunate, because the artistic content of most rock festivals rests on black pop idioms and the display of black bodies. Far from being the utopian and communal spaces of spiritual regeneration that they claim for themselves, I find that they serve mostly to display the free market to consumers in its very best light. At the same time, they may have helped link computer technology to rock music by, among other things, physically illustrating what I call "the digital diaspora, " that is, the new global routes for culture being carved out by the digitization of music.

Gustave Le Bon ( 1841 - 1931 ) war ein französischer Sozialpsychologe. Er gilt als Begründer der Massenpsychologie. Seine Wirkung auf die Nachwelt, wissenschaftlich auf Sigmund Freud und Max Weber, politisch insbesondere auf den Nationalsozialismus und seine Protagonisten, war groß. Seine Gedanken sind teils stark zeitgebunden und massiv durch persönliche Erfahrungen beeinflusst. Sie werden bis heute von der Sozialpsychologie diskutiert. Das Werk setzt sich sowohl mit den Themenkreisen Konformität, Entfremdung und Führung auseinander, als auch mit der Masse im eigentlichen Sinne. Le Bon vertritt die Auffassung, dass der Einzelne, auch der Angehörige einer Hochkultur, in der Masse seine Kritikfähigkeit verliert und sich affektiv, zum Teil primitiv-barbarisch, verhält. In der Massensituation ist der Einzelne leichtgläubiger und unterliegt der psychischen Ansteckung. Somit ist die Masse von Führern leicht zu lenken. Le Bon stellt vor allem dar, wie politische Meinungen, Ideologien und Glaubenslehren bei den Massen Eingang und Verbreitung finden, wie man Massen beeinflussen kann, wie die dazu notwendigen Führer entstehen, welche Eigenschaften sie haben müssen, wie sie wirken und untergehen und wo die Grenzen dieser Beeinflussbarkeit liegen. Immer wieder betont er den geringen Einfluss von Vernunft, Unterricht und Erziehung sowie die Anfälligkeit der Massen für Schlagworte, große Gesten und geschickte Täuschungen. Quelle: Wikipedia

"A topical study of crowd dynamics and the relationships of crowds to political power in Tunisia, Libya and Algeria, this book takes predominant crowd theory to task questioning received ideas about 'mob psychology' that remain prevalent today. One central theme of the book is gender, providing an in-depth look at women's participation in the recent uprisings and the subsequent gender-related aspects of political transitions. The social and political dynamics of tribalism and other forms of group belonging are raised in the book, including analysis and discussions with Libyan regional tribal chiefs, Libyan and Tunisian tribal members and citizens regarding their notions of tribal belonging. Crowd language is also central to the book's discussion of how crowds represent themselves, how we as observers represent crowds, and how crowds confront languages of authoritarianism and subjugation. Crowds and Politics in North Africa includes dozens of interviews with crowd participants and key civil society actors from Tunisia, Libya and Algeria. Among these, there are numerous interviews with Benghazi residents, activists and tribal leaders as one of the original case studies in the book is the crowds during and after the attack on the US consular installation in Benghazi Libya. A valuable resource, this book will be of use to students and scholars with an interest in the Middle East and Politics more broadly"--

First published in 1989, this persuasive and original work by John McClelland examines the importance of the idea of 'the crowd' in the writings of philosophers, historians and politicians from the classical era to the twentieth century. The book examines histories of political thought and their justifications for forms of rule, highlighting the persistent and profoundly anti-democratic bias in political and social thought, analysing in particular the writings of Machiavelli, Montesquieu, Hitler, Gibbon, Carlysle, Michelet, Taine and Freud.

In Elias Canettis handschriftlichem Nachlass findet sich neben einer explizit dem Thema gewidmeten Mappe eine große Anzahl ausformulierter Texte zum "Buch gegen den Tod", geplant als Gegenstu?ck zu "Masse und Macht". Im Mittelpunkt steht seine unerschu?tterliche Überzeugung: Wir du?rfen den Tod nicht akzeptieren, denn Krieg und Morden hängen zutiefst mit dem frommen oder resignierten Ja zum Tod zusammen. Rund zwei Drittel der Texte sind bisher ungedruckt; sie wurden ergänzt um Aufzeichnungen aus den veröffentlichten Bänden.
