Example text

Elias, [1939] 2000, pp367±368) Self-restraint became habitual, or unconscious, through the evolution of societies. Without this people could not operate in increasingly differentiated societies and without such societies such self-restraint would not be required. Note here how Elias is introducing a notion of unconscious processes, which is simultaneously individual and social. This is very different to Freud's notion of `the unconscious' arising in the individual through repression of innate drives.

It concludes that Elias and Freud provide completely different and quite incompatible accounts of the relationship between the individual and the group. This incompatibility is not founded simply on the differing emphasis the two accounts place on nature compared to nurture. It is true that they do account for the in¯uence of biological and social evolution in very different ways but the key distinction relates to the use of the spatial metaphor of mind inside and social outside a person. This distinction is fundamental to Freudian thought and that of almost all subsequent psychoanalysts but it is completely rejected by Elias in his process theory of mind and society.

And it is this fear of the loss of prestige in the eyes of others, instilled as a self compulsion, whether in the form of shame or a sense of honor, which assures the habitual reproduction of distinctive conduct, and the strict drive control underlying it, in individual people. (Elias, [1939] 2000, pp384±385) Elias then argues that although the contrast in conduct between the upper and lower groups diminishes as society evolves, the varieties or nuances of conduct increase. It is important to note how Elias understands the simultaneous evolution of society and individuals in terms of power relations, in terms of competition and cooperation.
