How to escape from the diabolic triangle?Followed by a Short Analysis of Some Other Collective Delusions Dr Jan Berting
In these postmodern times, we are bombarded with rumours, allegations of conspiracies and revelations about the real, but hidden objectives of powerful interest groups. We cannot live without collective representations. They are inside us, as part of our ‘covert’ culture. But the observation that they are a substantial part of our life also requires us to be very attentive to their important and partly unconscious negative role. In this publication, Dr. Jan Berting presents the disjunction phenomenon. He analyses nine cases, treating the disjunction between a collective representation of society and the role of ‘reality’ in different ways.
