What the hell is the “Ponerology”?
Poneros (latin): evil.
Ponerology: it’s a new science which analyzes “evil”, its origin, nature and causes on Humanity.
Who developed this science?
The psychiatrist Andrzej Łobaczewski (Poland). Specifically, this science is an interdisciplinary study of the causes of social injustice periods, ie, periods of oppression against human population (war of aggression, genocide, ethnic cleansing, police states). Here Psychology, Psychopathology, History, Sociology and Philosophy are involved.
Where was conducted the investigation?
Czechoslovakia and Hungary during the years before the institution of communism.
So, the author dissects the psychological profile of the “people” who come to power and become hard authoritarian leaders, as well as psychopathological processes or mental illnesses that are related to the types of evil behavior and evil thoughts, which are completely dissociated from the unit, collaboration, coexistence and original human feelings.
With very few exceptions through the ages, discussions of moral philosophy ( the study of right conduct) have failed to systematically investigate the origin, nature and the course of evil in a manner free of supernatural imaginings. Evil was often regarded as something to be suffered and endured rather than something that could be understood and eliminated by rational measures.
The author talks about the “happy times” and “unhappy times” that are alternated in societies, and he also talks about the term “pathocracy” which means “A system of government created by a small pathological minority who take over a society of normal people“.
Really, Evil requires a truly modern and scientific approach to discover its secrets.
Without knowledge there are no solutions. Without knowledge there is no nature. Without knowledge there is no life.
