By Gustave Le Bon, Crotoxina Ediciones, Julieta M. Steyr

Gustave Le Bon, considerado uno de los fundadores de l. a. psicología social, se adentra en el concepto de masa abarcando tres áreas: los individuos, su relación con los demás y los angeles vida en sociedad. “La masa es siempre intelectualmente inferior al hombre aislado. Pero, desde el punto de vista de los sentimientos y de los actos que los sentimientos provocan, puede, según las circunstancias, ser mejor o peor. Todo depende del modo en que sea sugestionada”. Sin embargo, su mérito no yace solamente en haber estudiado el concepto de masificación y despersonalización, analizando sus características, sino que además el autor adopta el concepto de “inconsciente”. Décadas más tarde, sería citicado por Sigmund Freud e influiría al sobrino de éste, Edward Bernays, creador de l. a. teoría de l. a. “propaganda”.
