Abstract

In the twentieth century, there are a number of novels of dystopic character, such as Jack London The Iron Heel, Evgeny Zamyatin We, George Orwell 1984, Aldous Huxley Brave New World, etc. There are very few scientific studies concerned with this topic, which must be supplemented in continuity. In Brew New World's work is specific the way of life, the way of life in human beings, beliefs, narrative transformations and transformations of the human world 632 years after Freud, the change and the erasure of human moral virtues as such, preliminary generations. Scientific dictatorship has replaced political dictatorship, the world is in a state of chaos, which nobody can dare to violate. Although humans are produced in labs, they deeply have a spiritual code, an unconscious that instinctively rejects the distopic rules of the time. The narrator sees little light in this dystopian future which tends to be extinguished by the new world rule. Citizens are in fact dehumanized since they are the result of conception they are the product of a force and mind that claims to be superior to others and thus control the whole life on the planet - to produce humuncules. The most prominent elements in the novel: the scientist as the world's new god, the dehumanization of human beings, drugs, entertainment, rampant love as elements that deplete the energy and the critical force of dictatorship. Dystopia in art and in everyday life is a subject of constant debate by intellectuals and people of our time. My argument for this deviation and dehumanization is to acquire the powers of reasonable people and to place scientific dictatorship as an absolute form of government and all this under the pretext of human freedom, which they justify with the elements of psychoanalysis.
