In his letters "On the Aesthetic Education of Man", Friedrich Schiller already emphasised the importance of play and spoke out against the specialisation and mechanisation of life's processes.
Later, Herbert Marcuse, in his 1967 work "One-Dimensional Man", also criticised the predominance of "instrumental reason" in industrial societies and the accompanying restriction of lifestyle and culture, which no longer leaves room for wholeness, personality development and autonomous self-development.
The subject of alienation then became more and more explosive among thinkers and only now are we slowly realising the consequences of this process in our daily lives.
