|Opis:||The thesis, which is in front of you is composed of three parts. The first part encompasses a brief historical overview of Guy Debord's thoughts and his Situationist International. The reader is introduced to the basic terms and philosophical structures that forms the idea of the society of spectacle. Society of the Spectacle is explained both in terms of the actions of revolutionaries (détournement), as well as various forms (concentrated, diffuse and integrated form), and its basic characteristics (eternal present, continuous technological innovation, mystery, distorted reality, etc.).
The second part moves a bit closer to an individual who resides in this company and who is studied from an anthropological/Darwinian perspective, the impact of the education system, consumerism, media manipulation, and other factors. In this section I want to expose the favorable external conditions and an individual propensity and weaknesses that mutually reproduce a favorable ground for the emergence and existence of the spectacle society.
In the third part, study fully concentrates on the psychodynamic that is created in every individual, as a reflection of the society previously described. This mentioned part contains advanced elaboration of antisocial and narcissistic personality disorders. Fully conscious that in both cases we talk about clinical categories of indiviudal state of mind, the position of the individual is also explored within other aspects and with approaches that include the ubiquitous concern for status, violence, loose interpersonal relationships, philosophy, money, etc.. The third part includes a critique of conventional psychiatrical/ psychological approaches, the pharmaceutical industry, DSM code that with their excessive individual scientific approach, neglect the general social climate as one of the main causes of the mentioned personality disorders. In this manner, the price of profit and economic benefit of a few, pass responsibility on to the individual himself, who is completely unprotected and exposed to society that calls for the demolition of mental and physical health. Critical psychology and criminology see the solution in the social engineering, the law is ultimately just a tool in the hands of capital, a tool which legalises harmful practices due to which the individual rotates as a peg top that hits the internal and external obstacles, vortices and hurricanes.|
