Über diesen Titel
This text weighs the influence of psychology on culture, traces the therapeutic model to its roots, and examines the connection between psychology and the marketing of goods and ideas. The author finds that the influence of psychology has saturated contemporary life both public and private. The book tracks the expansion of the therapeutic project from its beginnings in Locke and considers reflections on and of psychology in a number of authors, including Orwell, Conrad and Dostoevsky.From Library Journal:
Justman (English, Univ. of Montana), who has written books on Adam Smith and John Stuart Mill, here takes a harsh view of psychology as it has come to shape our personal and social lives. Chapters deal with Edward Bernays (public relations), Stanley Milgram's obedience research, Herbert Marcuse (political psychology), Conrad's Heart of Darkness, Dostoevsky, Orwell, Locke, and Milton. Justman indicts the insidious blandness of diagnosis and treatment that displaces decorum, moral judgment, and responsibility. Erudite, clear, and hard-hitting, this is consciouness-raising in the best sense by a scholar versed in literature, history, and philosophy whose thematic integration of diverse materials is dazzling. What is missing is an acknowledgment of psychological writers?Otto Rank, Erik Erikson, Thomas Szasz, Robert Jay Lifton?who have kept moral principles in mind. Recomended for scholars and general readers interested in psychology, modern culture, and social criticism.?E. James Lieberman, George Washington Univ. Sch. of Medicine, Washington, DC
