Materialism, Narcissism, and Sensations

“Psychologies of narcissism fall into the mainstream of the new American society in stressing the importance of the experiences of life. As materialism gives way to the new spiritualism, what is possessed seems less important than what is experienced. People would rather save for a luxurious vacation than a luxurious car. Experience is important because it is composed of sensations, and sensations are all that is left of man after the reductionisms of both behaviorism and pantheism destroy his being. For both behaviorists and pantheists human life consists of a succession of sensations inhering in nothing. Without experiencing sensations, then, man loses his identity, even his significance.” (Herbert Schlossberg, Idols for Destruction, p. 167).
