Welche Unterschiede gibt es zwischen diesen massentheoretischen Modellen? Diese Forschungsfrage soll während dieser Arbeit näher beleuchtet werden.
Zu Beginn dieser Arbeit sollen die Modelle anhand der mit Hilfe der Standardwerke von Le Bon, Freud und Ortega y Gasset ausführlich dargestellt werden. Im zweiten und analytischen Teil sollen diese unter den Aspekten: Individuum, Führer und Masse und Rolle der faith einander gegenüber gestellt werden. Gewiss kann guy weitere Aspekte hier an¬bringen, dies würde jedoch den Rahmen dieser Arbeit sprengen.
Zum aktuellen Forschungsstand der Thematik ist zu sagen, dass der Begriff „Masse“ als Gegenstand wissenschaftlicher Erörterung erstmals um 1800 auftrat. Die Französische Revolution bot den Anlass sich mehr diesem Termini zu nähern. Im 20. Jahrhundert wurde der Massenbegriff schließlich zum „terminologischen Signum“ eines ganzen Zeitalters. Vor allem die dann vorgestellten Personen sorgten durch ihre Standardwerke: „Psycholoige der Massen“ (Le Bon, 1895), „Massenpsychologie und Ich-Analyse“ (Freud, 1921) und „Aufstand der Massen“ (Ortega y Gasset, 1930) für terminologische Annäherungen und Deutungen an das „Massenphänomen“. Nicht ohne Grund sind diese Werke Pflichtlektüren an philosophischen, psychologischen und soziologischen Instituten an den Universitäten Deutschlands.

Nazism and Communism were regularly in comparison because the Nineteen Twenties. a feeling of the ways that those comparisons were used and abused by means of either correct and Left belongs to our universal history.
These 20th century evils invite comparability, if simply as a result of their disturbing results. we've got a duty to appreciate what occurred, and we even have a duty to appreciate how we have now handled it.
