Fordist Society and the Person

Published in Studi emigrazione. 2014, vol. 196, p. 557-566
Abstract Fordism was not only a way of production, but also a way to homologize and control society. In its dehumanizing dimension, Fordism focalized only on the societal consequences of production, following clearly defined objectives, in particular economic growth and a conflict-free society. The consequences of Fordism were a prioritization of these societal objectives and a difficulty in dealing with individual freedom and security. This dehumanising characteristic was only challenged when the economic and political limits of the model appeared and a young generation, socialized outside the Fordist production regime, came to adulthood.
