An argument regarding the nature of hooligan behavior

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
We refer to the remarkable thought of Erwin Schrödinger expressed in his book “What is life?” regarding the connection between life and a decrease of entropy realized via feeding (eating). This thought is “transferred” into the field of human psychology, explaining hooligan behavior (e.g. the “days of violence”) as a natural human response to the improper (in its content or form) “informational feeding” that does not allow one to normally treat (‘’digest”) the received information, i.e. to make ones thoughts simpler in their logical structure. Delivering information without pedagogical, psychological, and (when children are involved) neurological supervision or assistance is supposed to be the cause for the hooliganism that more and more often obtains a dangerous organized form.
