Example text

De Botton reiterates a critique of advertising most successfully proposed by Packard in two popular analyses published in the UK and the US in the 1960s The Hidden Persuaders and The Status Seekers (Packard 1957, 1959). In similar vein, in a 1997 BBC production, psychologist Oliver James examined advertising as part of a broad survey of contemporary Britain, placing the nation ‘on the couch’. He worked to expose our collective neuroses, and was led to make a more general point about how advertising damages the national character: Defenders of the genre [advertising] sometimes counter attack by citing the evidence that children quickly learn to disbelieve adverts.

Since the 1960s critical analysis has been alert to some of the potential problems attached to these modes and habits of representation. It is a routine objection for instance to find advertising complicit in the affirmation and production of stereotypical images of people and limited views of ‘the good life’. The chapter examines questions of representation and considers some advertising analyses concerned with representation of distinct groups, for instance, women, ethnic minorities and the family.

As such it has a role to play in providing us with information about and a feeling for goods and ideas in circulation. However the legitimacy of advertising propositions must always be understood to be compromised by audiences’ capacities to assess the advertising promise up against information, ideas and ideals developed and affirmed in our engagements with other discourses; science, politics, family and social custom, religion and so on. Advertising attempts to operate in dialogue with such competing discourses, and mimics and appropriates some of their surface elements, or challenges and undermines their basic assumptions.
