"Clinical record"


of psychology

So, for example, in one of lectures the author for the first time accurately determined by

the main components of mentality of the so-called "Soviet person" (unaccountable fear, conformism, phenomena of "Tsakhes's Crumb" and "Ivan who is not remembering relationship", blockade consciousness, social xenophobia, the imposed besserebrennichestvo, a bezzako-noposlushnost, family a striptease-tion, a sanctimonious deseksualization, political and semantic deafness). In the book distinctly the answer to an urgent problem of the present is also accurately given: what does the mentality of the Soviet person differ from traditional mentality of the Russian person in?

Here, in the second part of "The psychologist's notes", the author (though it is shy) tries to explain to

from philosophical and psychological positions emergence of such social phenomenon, fantastic on grandness, as a phenomenon of mass political informing in the USSR ("informers in the law" and volunteer assistants of "bodies" for capture of spies, saboteurs and "enemies of the people").


Besides, to fans of psychological science, history and philosophy it will be interesting to read the author's reasonings about "effect Zeygarnik", about Stalin's charisma and V. Vysotsky's charisma, about double morals and a double life, about psychological duality of time, about "time machine" of the strongest hypnotist of the present Vladimir Raykov, about "live computers", about phenomenal effect of Roza KuleRetsenziya.

A long chain pass before the reader social and psychological types, images of "the lost generation" against the background of an era of "hard times" when in miasmata of the Big lie and Great fear all borders and all differences between a dreadful dream and daily reality were erased.

So of the concrete, nonfictional, often documentary confirmed scenes and images the scientist-psychologist the three-dimensional picture of "great and terrible" an era consists.
