I have listened to Andrew Fellows’ lecture on epistemology about 10 times and I still get stuff out of it — and it drives me crazy. His various lectures can be found on BeThinking’s website and L’Abri’s website. He also has a PDF document Culture of Narcissis here.
This paper is an attempt to show that the modern person is in the grip of a new psychological consciousness – one that is extremely pre-occupied with the self. We have become a culture of Narcissism. I have given a perspective as I see it from a European point of view.
An ancient story from Greek mythology provides a door into the world of the narcissist. It centres on a very handsome young man called Narcissus. So attractive was this man that all the girls fell in love with him. He was aware of his charms and this made him arrogant and proud. Despite the efforts of the ladies to win his affections he ignored their overtures. One was especially attracted to him and did everything she could to win his attention. She too failed in her attempts. So desperate was she to win him that she prayed to a goddess that Narcissus would respond favourably. There was no answer. Finally with a broken heart she prayed that he would learn as she had what it was like to experience unrequited love. To this prayer there was an answer. One day as Narcissus was walking through the forest he stumbled upon a clear pool of water. As he knelt to drink – for he was very thirsty – the loveliest sight that had ever appeared captivated his attention. He immediately fell in love. So great was his attraction that he could not leave the pool and his appetite vanished. Before long his health deteriorated and he began to fade. In the end he died staring at this image in the pool – striving the embrace the one object of his desire – himself.
