The Century of Self

This episode of The Century of Self: There Is A Policeman Inside All Our Heads by the BBC looks at Freud’s and psychoanalysis’ influence on marketing and advertising and the effects it had on society. It is a study of a new consumerism starting in the 1960’s and how this new consumerism led to the creation of groups, such as The Weatherman, who felt they were being brainwashed by corporations. Ultimately, these effects led to new philosophies that changed the idea of self.
