THE PHILOSOPHY OF DEPRESSION
Journal Title:International Journal of Communication Research
Depression, together with anxiety, is one of the most fundamental emotional states of conscious being. The fall from the paradise of innocence was the fall into knowledge which brings about the freedom of choice and uncertainty of understanding altogether. The level of self-consciousness state I come with self-understanding an auto-poietic process of self-referentiality that involves both the anxiety of responsibility and depression of choosing. Consciousness begun with anxiety and depression, and was assisted by them throughout its entire evolution. The present high rate of clinical depressed people is a sign of an unbalanced functioning and of an inappropriate understanding these two fundamental axes of human psychic within modern culture, which should be reconsidered and employed for the progress of the consciousness and not foolishly pharmacological concealed.
