The first objective of the essay is to present which are the characteristics of postmodern personality, which is characterized by a precarious existence. The individual must move himself in continuous new beginnings, continued modernization, continuous changes. This individual freedom is what allows us to be open to all possibilities but also that, at the same time, he breaks into a thousand pieces of values, limits every virtue.
It seems that today, every action, is less and less empty of values and that's because everyone every one knows that he has the ability to change his choice, without feeling too much, the weight of responsibility. The second objective is therefore to reflect on the importance of values in psychological research and their role in post-modern society and in human life.
As a final goal, a suggestion on how to deal with the chaos and emptiness current: a perspectives contains a simple wisdom .The idea is to recover a endangered competence: the attention that has created our experiences, has stored in memory, the seat of our history, and helped to create our personal lives, which is a constellation of accidents, but the work of art to our concentration.
