Banality

May 14, 2013 § Leave a comment

“In my opinion banality remains the whole diagnostic criterion of the crisis within our era” Gohar Homayounpour (Doing Psychoanalysis in Tehran).

When you watch television (specially news sections and reality shows), read the newspapers or surf through the internet, is it not banality the common denominator? what about when you talk to people? your friends? family? the man next door? the woman at the supermarket? is it banality the common denominator as well? or sometimes yes, sometimes not? is it not banality more pronounced through the media (social, electronic or whatever)? I agree that banality is poignant within our era but I´m not so sure where it´s coming from.
