About the Book

The Crowd A Study of the Popular Mind (French: Psychologie des Foules, literally-Psychology of the Crowd) is a book published by Gustave Le Bon in 1895. In the book, Le Bon claims that there are various characteristics of crowd psychology, such as irritability, impulsiveness, incapacity to reason, the absence of judgment of the critical spirit, the distortion of opinions, and others. Le Bon claimed that an individual immersed in a crowd for some timeframe soon finds himself in a special state as a result of the magnetic impact given out by the crowd or for another reason of which we are unaware, which much resembles the condition of interest in which the hypnotized individual finds himself in the hands of the hypnotherapist.

About Author

Gustave Le Bon

Gustave Le Bon (May 7, 1841-Dec. 13, 1931) was born in France. He was a French social psychologist and is most famous for his study of the psychological characteristics of crowds. After being rewarded with a doctorate in medicine, Le Bon went to Europe, North Africa, and Asia and wrote many books on anthropology and archaeology. His interests turned toward natural science and social psychology. In Les Lois's psychologiques de l'évolution des peuples (1894), he improved a view that history is the product of culture or national character, with feelings, not intelligence. Le Bon accepted that modern life was progressively described by crowd assemblages. In La Psychologie des Foules (1895), (The Crowd), his most famous work, he argued that the mindful personality of the person in a crowd is immersed and that the collective crowd mind rules; crowd behavior is united, emotional, or psychologically weak.
