The term attitude is generally used in Philosophy, Sociology and Psychology contemporary to indicate to all selective and active orientation of the human being in relation to a situation. Dewey considered this word as a synonym for habit and disposition

Nicola Abbagnano in his Dictionary of Philosophy (F.C.E.) defines attitude as the draft make choices behavior that allows constant value against a particular situation.

The Idiodramática Attitude is the provision of psychodrama director regarding his own behavior during their performance in the dramatic situation. By this attitude the director is placed on availability with respect to its star, attentive to the given, as it emerges from the action itself phenomenologically. It will be attentive, throughout the process of psychodrama dramatic program to key emerging, always putting their hypotheses to serve the dramatic process and not the process in the service of his theories.

The idiodramática feature is an essential quality in a suitable psychodrama program. (See psychodrama program).


In some authors activism is often associated with actualism (see actualism), however Abbagnano argues the need to distinguish clearly.

The term designates actualism metaphysical theory that reality is an act or activity, whereas activism indicates the attitude (sometimes the result of a rationalization or attempted philosophical theory) ideological principle takes the subordinate all values, including the truth, the requirements of the action.

The actualist doctrine is a form of idealism and to be stricter romantic idealism. When this alienates romantic idealism can fall and become activism.

The belief that action can produce by itself the conditions of its success and absolutely justified itself, It is one of his typical fall. This is the core of activism that can be found in some filosóficoideológicas currents far not tried to justify policies.

Activism as decadent attitude took on principle the subordinate all values, and even, the truth value, the demands of political action. This principle finally leads to Nazism and Stalinism, just to name some policies that hid under the ideological rationalization of Activism.

In the same Pragmatism, in a first time, W. James had declared the action as the measure of the truth of knowledge. This was misunderstood concept allowing even come to justify then, theoretically unjustifiable certain moral propositions. Empiricists analysis of James and Dewey, sin embargo, They could make light of how the action is always conditioned from the circumstances that cause. Thus highlights the intimate relationship between the situation which is the stimulus and the limits of its effectiveness and freedom of action itself.

This is what makes the action ceases to be linked solely to the subject. It is not only related to the subject and not only is there the beginning. This view shows the error and shortsightedness activism.

Without these contributions to the question, You can not take into account the things that the action must also adapt.

Moreno can be seen in the actualism. But never in activism.

These details are important to conceptually sustain the sense of what Moreno points out in his conception of spontaneity.
