Propositions: OUP Handbook of Propaganda Studies, Auerbach and Castronovo, eds.
1. Propaganda is not intrinsically evil or immoral.
2. Propaganda entails propagation, but not everything that propagates is necessarily
3. The relation between propaganda and information is fluid, varying according to
context and function.
4. Although propaganda is not an essential category with precise formal attributes,
particular techniques of propagation can be studied with variable results.
5. Any given practice of propaganda must be understood in relation to culturally
specific proximate institutions, such as education, religion, public diplomacy,
advertising, and literature.
6. Propaganda changes according to specific media, but cannot entirely be defined
by the attributes of a given medium.
7. Propaganda in its effects can be partial, and need not be total.
8. Analyzing propaganda requires paying as much attention to networks of
information flow (how) as the content (what).
9. People can actively use propaganda, and are not simply passive dupes used by it.
Propaganda does not necessarily spread from the top down.
10. Propaganda can produce unintended effects beyond the control of both producers
and receivers.
11. To be effective, propaganda must harness a rich affective range beyond negative
emotions such as hatred, fear, and envy to include more positive feelings such as
pleasure, joy, belonging, and pride.
12. Propaganda is an integral feature of democratic societies.
13. The study of propaganda remains highly relevant and in all likelihood will
continue to be a critical issue for the future.
