Edward HallíS Cultural Unconscious.

18078. Edward HallíS Cultural Unconscious.

This paper discusses the views of Edward T. Hall (expressed in Beyond Culture) on the existence of a "cultural unconscious" that covertly drives human behavior. According to Hall, bureaucratic institutions play a role in perpetuating this phenomenon. In addition, he argues that there is a need to go "beyond" culture in order to alleviate the problems caused by failures in cross-cultural communication. The paper also includes a discussion of how Tzvetan Todorov's book The Conquest of America provides ahistorical illustration of Hall's view of culture as an "irrational force." KEYWORDS: cross-cultural communication psychoanalysis edward t. hall cultural unconscious todorov spanish conquest america. Turabian Style with Endnotes. 11 pages, 22 footnotes, 4 bibliographic sources. 2,788 words.
