Sample text

Humans are powerful because of things they do to and say about themselves in the theatres of their consciousness. It is largely inner speech that constructs the sacredness of the individual. This process can be explained with the ideas of the French social theorist, Emile Durkheim. To use Durkheim to explain the sacred self, you have to begin with the sacredness of society, working your way step-wise down to the self. One of the most powerful ideas of Durkheim is that societies are held together by solidarity, and that this solidarity is engendered by social rituals.

For example, in the decision to commit suicide, to pick a sombre example, there is usually a time lag between the time of decision and the time when one can carry out the decision. This time lag will probably include plenty of internal dialogue concerning the action. For one thing one might be thinking about the more specific planning details, such as how or where to perform the act. But one might also vacillate in the decision, particularly as the moment approaches (Firestone, 1986). The enactment can also entail several new choices.

All of the phobias and compulsions might respond to this approach. An incessant hand washer can distinguish the wetting down, soaping up, rubbing around, watering down, etc, for example. And mood disorders such as depression have also been treated with inner speech modification. In all cases the therapist and the patient construct some kind of cognitive dissonance that raises the psychic costs of maintaining the symptom. 5. Durkheim and the solidarity of the self Throughout this chapter I have been showing how the self uses inner speech to direct its action or agency.
