SOCIAL SYSTEMS, SPATIALITY, TECHNOLOGY AND POSITIVE DISINTEGRATION

Presenter Name: Clive Hazell

This presentation will bring together the four domains in the title insofar as it will offer a model of the ways in which unconscious dynamics of groups are affected by and are expressed through technology, spatiality and positive disintegration. By applying Heidegger’s ideas concerning technology and Dabrowski’s theory of positive disintegration to theoretical geography and group relations theories, one arrives at what might be some novel and timely explanations of social dynamics. In addition, one is lead to some modest proposals as to coping with rapid socio-technical changes.
