Theodor W. Adorno (1903-1969), a prominent member of the Frankfurt School, was one of the most influential thinkers of the 20th century in the areas of social theory, philosophy and aesthetics.
"When Adorno speaks to us from beyond the grave on right-wing extremism, we should all listen." Cas Mudde, University of Georgia "Fifty years on, Theodor Adorno's warnings of populist demagoguery remain all too relevant" Financial Times "Delivered as a lecture to a meeting of the Socialist Students of Austria, Aspects of the New Right-Wing Extremism provides one of the clearer views on the subject by the composer of notoriously recondite texts." TheBattleground.eu "[Adorno's] 1967 lecture on the new right-wing extremism deftly encapsulates his general view that fascism was never really defeated but resides in the everyday facets of both social structure and personal conduct and must always be combated anew."
