In order to discover the central cause of the pronounced social and economic divisions according to Theodor Adorno it is first necessary to define the word “society” in terms of the individual and the forces by which individuals remain connected to it. The common representation of a society is any group of people who share ideas and are capable of being a force of reason and a structure by which individuals can discuss intellectually significant matters. It was once supposed that the only societies in existence were those of the elite and intellectuals, but the availability of new information and modes of communicating complex ideas led to discussions within communities of people allowing comparisons within a society in order to formulate a collective capable of analyzing that which is necessary for improving its structure. The predictability within the industrialization of commodities that satisfy the material needs of the society who remains connected even to the point of congruent desires proves that on the end opposite the intellectual properties of collectivism are the numerous affects of the psychological fixations of the society detrimental to the individual. Further analysis leads one to question the representations of society that are functional for extracting theory, and to specify the affect as it relates to the individual. The individual in relation to this constantly expanding industrialized society is seemingly a commodity studied by the marketers of satisfaction, but as more than a consumer, the individual is the force aware of his role in maintaining the system who is continually satisfied by the empathetic value of the surrounding society. Adorno’s conceptual theory on society shows that society as a whole can only cease comprehension and create “relationships among men which grow increasingly independent of them” (63). In order to further define the means by which this occurs it is necessary to define the role of society in the identity and actions of the individual separate from the affect on reasoning and intellectual process. Structured society is capable of causing a change in the individual’s perception of his actions. This concept relates to the identity as it is the result of introspection on one interactions within society and leads to reasoning that has the potential to affect actions. This seems beneficial as a strengthening to reasoning, but can lead to the continued unawareness of the individual whose inhibitions may grow as a result of his awareness of a self image in the face of society. Sadly, it is this attribute that is the connectedness as well as the primary problem of society. The connectedness of a society is a result of the comfort of the existence of standards by which all members of a society live, but at the same time, interacting in an environment as such leads to a formalization of reason given one’s interpretation of appropriate actions within the society. The affect of society on the nature of individuality is central to understanding the application of functionalized reason, because the concept of a society entails the means of definition within it thereby furthering the predictability of the desirable commodities. According to Adorno the state of the society was, “a vast network of consumers whose needs and wants have been predetermined by entrepreneurs and the consumers engaging in purchasable forms of remaining a part of the society”(64). Adorno considers that some individuals begin to have a “role” in society. The term role in his case does not establish the possibility of permanence, but the increased awareness of oneself as a member of society enables an individual to formulate a representative self that is the way one believes he is most capable of being a normal member of society. The common individual is always representative of the society in some way, and comparisons of representations would prove one of the first ways in which it was established that different societies existed. The economies in both capitalist and non capitalist systems rely on the predictability and existence of the network of consumers. The variable difference though is the amount of distance between the societies, the large scale response to the differences, and the availability of obtainable satisfaction. The repression here can be seen in that although differences exist, there is consistent satisfaction in terms of each group of people who can relate life experiences. The negative shared aspects and the exchanges that make the awareness of class difference universal are a positive result of the existence of a society. Unfortunately, the class struggle for improvements within a society and the individual struggle for a better life remain merely objects of conversation. The possibility for change is apparently kept open by the existence of a working upper class, but remains unattainable for the average individual. The structure of society proves beneficial as a suitable way of exchanging ideas suitable for implementation in the right conditions, and also creates a social standard by which the members of the society can be understood collectively and can relate. The negative aspect remains the detrimental affect on individuality and the way the structure can generate social and psychological satisfaction from undesirable conditions ceasing the progressive thought that eventually leads to large scale social change. Individuals continue to remain enchanted by society because a subjective standard is established within that is seemingly the representation of the ideal experience of its members. The subjective standard is another way that that the standardization of thought is comfortably continued, but the representations of society become so immediately intertwined with the habits and idiosyncrasies of its members, that there is no desire or possibility of escaping it. It is the structure of society which creates desire and fixations, satiates them, and further allows individuals to see both the standard and a clearer vision of individuality by comparison, but it is also that which continues the predictability of markets and funds the increase in the difference between social societies. In closing, the structure of society can be viewed as many forces: a force for that creates comfort, but fuels oppression through ignorance, a force that is highly predictable but at times defines modernity, a force that promotes empathy but brings out the major differences in people, and a force that is capable of enacting its own form of reason, but provides the means by which one can draw conclusions that transcend time, and it is this vast array of necessities fulfilled by the society that makes it capable of being analyzed as a structure consistent throughout history .
