Description

The Century of the Self is a BBC documentary series by Adam Curtis, tracing the influence of Freudian ideas and the family of Sigmund Freud on the way corporations and governments throughout the 20th century have thought about, and dealt with, people.

To many in both politics and business, the triumph of the self is the ultimate expression of democracy, where power has finally moved to the people. Certainly the people may feel they are in charge, but are they really? The Century of the Self tells the untold and sometimes controversial story of the growth of the mass-consumer society in Britain and the United States. How was the all-consuming self created, by whom, and in whose interests?
