ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. To me, this is mister Canetti presenting his crods, pretentious, shallow, canettl unsupported by research theories about crowds in the most patronizing and infurating way I’ve seen in a long time. Hij doet dat alles niet op de logisch-systematische wijze van de wetenschapper: There are strikingly original chapters that deal with topics such as “transformation” the key to understanding totemism”the mask”, and the blatant intrusiveness of asking any but the simplest question.

Unlike much non-fiction writing, it is highly poetic and seething with anger.

I particularly enjoyed Canetti’s discussion of symbols of the crowd, the psychology of teeth and digestion, poqer hero, and fame. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews.

The book is admirable for its erudition and scope, ranging through history, anthropology, mythology, psychology, politics, biology, and more to give All I hear is praise for this book. Contrariamente a quanto ho finora borbottato, il decadimento del Premio Nobel arriva da lontano.


Di perle simili il libro ne contiene tante. E preciso che le due stelle sono per le pagine iniziali, le sole ben fatte e brillanti Massa chiusa,aperta,invisibili, masse aizzate, masse in fuga, fino alla classificazione delle mute, ci siamo, bravo Canetti.

The crowd is a “mysterious and universal phenomenon,” he writes. En nog adembenemender schrijft hij over ahd verschillende vormen van macht, en over de biologische oervormen van het bevel. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life.

For those contemplating reading, think Roland Barthe, Levi – Strauss, Eliade, Braudel’s annales school or later generation where the focus was more on “mentalities”and maybe a touch of Propp’s Morphology of the Folktale.

Men mag het niet toestaan meer dan de huid te schrammen. Some of the borrowed descriptions of rituals and events in different cultures are fascinating, while Canetti’s writing is strongest when it is metaphorical and descriptive. AN insightful book delivered with excellent service. Mar 10, BlackOxford rated it really liked it Shelves: Met soortgelijke, even essayistische als eigenzinnig-indringende zinnen, maakt Canetti snel daarna al even voelbaar dat het noodzakelijk is om je te verschansen achter muren om deze angstwekkende aanraking door het onbekende te voorkomen.


Maar die conclusies zijn wel enorm pregnant geformuleerd, en wel enorm overtuigend als verhaal of als literair beeld.

Ja, het is vreselijk maar het is waar: After establishing his basic crowd-typology, Canetti presents page after page of remarkable observations and conclusions about what makes each type behave as it does.
