Themes of violence in Psycho-Pass

Gen Urobuchi’s Psycho-Pass exhibits varying themes of both implicit and explicit violence. I would be interested for the various kinds of violence depicted in Psycho-Pass to be explored: violence enacted by the government onto certain characters, violence inflicted by one character onto another, or even violence directed by a character onto themselves. Some thinkers that I have considered on my own when thinking about this topic are Hegel, Nietzsche, and Caillois.

  • It would also be interesting to see how different types of violence effects people and how that is reflected in the show. – LaRose 7 years ago
