Consumerism provides a complex and worrying philosophical dilemma. In this paper I try to look at contemporary discussion and ramifications concerning mass consumption, as well as the theoretical roots of the phenomena. Through such an exploration I seek to make clear the idiosyncratic understanding and pervasive role consumerism has today. I will look at the serious affronts to selfhood and society that such a manifest phenomena entails and see precisely why these problematic abstractions occur.
