Contradictions of Adolescence. Narcissism and Triangulation in Postfordism

Based on the actuality of conservative values, aspirations for security and for adjustment and status maintenance among (post-)adolescents, the article examines possible reasons for the failure of educating for more democracy, social competences, and tolerance. It is the latent messages and general conditions of socialization in postfordism, that neutralize or even thwart the pedagogical efforts. To investigate the subjective effect of this hidden curriculum, we recommend making use of the quite unattended hermeneutic adolescence research. For that purpose, the concept of the moratorium is extended by its sociopsychological dimension. Narcissism and Triangulation as developmental psychological concepts proved particularly helpful in this case. Contradictory normative requirements in adolescence socialization attack the already labile narcissistic balance as well as the triangulation of youths.
