Freud goes to say, “we ought not to infer from it that technical progress is without value for the economics of our happiness”(pg.35). Due to the technological advances, our civilizations economic stand creates harsh conditions for families to reproduce once again interfering with nature and natural selection. All our social advances have followed the “cheap enjoyment” model, the major cause of anxiety and neuroses. Comical in the sense that behaviorism related to specific stimuli to obtain a regulated response. The power society has acquired, implements limitation in fulfilling our natural human desires, to the point were following social order gives us pleasure.
I agree with Freud concept of civilization that builds-up critical information of acquiring wealth and useful resources from nature. Throughout chapter 1, Freud criticizes how civilization influences the rules that control the actions of people. The actions may include harming others but distribute wealth among them. At a point, Freud described that the knowledge to gain satisfaction and the rules of gaining wealth depend on each other. Importantly, the way people relate to each other is determined by how satisfied they are instinctual.
It is based on the principle of equality of all citizens and on the power to the people, but these principles are not completely fair with respect to the citizens, and more importantly, they do not work in developed societies. Equality of all is magnificent in principle; nonetheless, it would not be fair, since it does not take into account the principle of meritocracy. Under Marx’s communism, people will not be rewarded for their merits, but everyone will have the same opportunities and enjoy the same benefits. The equality of opportunities that Marx suggests is moral since everyone should have the same opportunities to receive a good quality education, to be able to apply for a good job and receive adequate health care. However, in certain fields as labor, people should be able to succeed thanks to merit, not thanks to equality or recommendations.
This research paper deals with the mental disorders and social setup of bourgeois society and explores the theme of the alienation in H.G.Wells 's The Invisible Man. Alienation is a momentous theme of modern age, which shows the frustration of society and individual 's spiritual and personal interest. In order to define the complex process of the term, Karl Marx and Hegel have described the causes and significance of the Alienation. According to Marx, Alienated man is an abstraction because he has lost his contact with all human beings. Man suffers from a very pathetic condition due to his failures in society.
Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World: Underlining the Importance of Individualism in a Technological World. The modern world is dominated by an astounding amount of humans, yet unfortunately, a significantly lower count of individual people. An individual is someone who sees the world through their own eyes, thinks their own thoughts about it, and disregards any outside attempts to sway their opinions. These innovative people allow society as a whole to progress, and a lack of them dramatically slows change, be it good or bad, leading to a stagnant world in which humanity rejects all change and progress out of fear. This hypothetical is silently creeping into our reality today, as the current societal machine quietly disallows many once open paths
At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking; who innovate but loathe self-promotion, dislike small talk, and feel exceptionally strong emotions. It is to introverts—Rosa Parks, Chopin, Steve Wozniak, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Mahatma Ghandi—that we owe many of the great contributions to society. In Quiet, Susan Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and also shows how much we lose in doing so. She shows the rise of the “Extrovert Ideal” throughout the twentieth century and explores how deeply it has come to permeate our culture.
Some groups lack motivation, strong leadership, or simply have personality conflicts. Even when it appears that a group was falling apart, it is important to avoid breaking up the group. Not only will the group dynamics of the original group be affected if the members are reassigned, but the addition of members to other groups will disrupt their dynamics as well (Davis, 1993). Many people cringe and groan when told that they will need to work in group. This phenomenon is called “grouphate.” Grouphate has been referred to as the dread and repulsion that many people feel about working in groups or teams (Sorension, 1981).
According to (...) person living with mental illness may begin to internalise mental illness stigmas and stereotypes. This means that mentally ill people start to see themselves in the light of the stereotypes of society. As a result they may begin to feel shame, low self-esteem and develop feelings of incompetence. According to (...) the prejudice and discrimination that persons with mental illness experience in public can lower their self-esteem and sense of identity. They begin to think of themselves as worthless and feel as though they do not belong into society.
The individual has the tendency to arrange behaviors in a continuum in such a way that the behaviors may lead to desirable outcomes. The motivation of the individual is towards gratification or satisfaction and in other theories it is equated to happiness. Needs by structure are controlled and instigated by id. Though the individual perceives the presence of the drive object or there is an absence of it, the end of the behavioral pattern is satisfaction or happiness (Dynamic Psychology). For Freud, he views that hedonism asserts pleasure and happiness as the chief goals in life.
