-Kate: Hi, David! I'm fine, thank you! And, how are you
-David: Very well, thanks! Just a bit worried about the coming exam.
Kate: Why? Is it so difficult to pass?
David: No, I wouldn't say it's very difficult, but it's definitely important for my future profession. Kate: I see. Are you worried about Biology? David: Yes, I really need good marks in this exam, because I want to enter a Medical college. Kate: I remember that you've planned to study in the field of medicine. What's so interesting in it? In my opinion, it's a very difficult job to deal with various human illnesses.
David: You're right. I've never thought it's easy. But I know for sure that working in medical field is interesting and useful. When I imagine that after several years of studying I'll be capable of treating people around me, I want to study even more eagerly. Other than that, I'm interested in various innovations.It would be great if I could make my own discovery in medicine. Kate: Sounds great! And, have you chosen the exact field, yet? I mean, do you want to work in dentistry, gastroenterology, traumatology or any other fields? David: Yes, I know what you mean. I want to be a humble physician, because these people's work involves lots of knowledge almost in every medical field. They should be aware of many health problems. Kate: I see. That's a good choice. David: Remind me, please, what did you choose to do after the school is over? Kate: I want to go to a Law school. My parents insist on it. David: Are you unhappy with their choice? Kate: Kind of. I've always wanted to be an artist. You know, I'm really fond of drawing. But my father says that being an artist is more of a hobby than actual work. He says that I can draw in my free time just for pleasure. David: He might be right. However, if you don't want to become a lawyer at all, then better refuse now. Kate: No, it's fine. It has lots of advantages too. Lawyers sometimes deal with interesting people and cases. I will probably like the process of investigation or negotiations at court. David: Sounds interesting! I think, you should pass Social studies to enter the City Law School, is that right? Kate: Yes, that's true. I'm also a bit nervous before the exams. However, I think we'll do just fine. David: Thanks for cheering me up! I feel much better now. Kate: No problem! We can talk about it anytime.

Heroes and celebrities

Back in the twentieth century there was a British punk rock song that repeated over and over again the claim that there were «no more heroes anymore». Calmer critics and social commentators have agreed that the age of the hero is over. In the past people had heroes. They were the most prominent figures in the public consciousness — people who had achieved great things, people who had done great deeds — proud, noble leaders and bold pioneers.

The myth of the hero, though, could not survive when public life came to be dominated by the mass media. The mass media killed off the heroes and replaced them with celebrities. To become a celelbrity what matters is not so much the greatness of what you have done but the exposure you are given in the media.

The mass media is not solely responsible for the death of the hero.A democratic culture also undermines the idea that certain individuals carry a divine spark and are therefore in a category superior to that of the rest of us. No one deserves to be worshipped and there is a revulsion at the idea of bending the knee and kissing the hand of another individual.

The critical gaze of the psychologist and sociologist have also entered public consciousness, adding to the forces tearing down the statues of the past. The drives of a great individual are seen to have their roots in an unhappy youth, an obsession with his mother or being spurned by a lover; and his great ambition is said to stem from an early inability to simply hang out with the boys and have a good time. The achievements remain but the man himself emerges from the analysis without a shred of nobility.

Having killed the hero we have replaced him with a distinctively modern public figure: the celebrity. As one commentator put it: the celebrity is a person who is known for being well-known. Any exposure in the media helps to increase someone's status as a celebrity. Celebrities offer exclusive stories to increase their exposure, the media promote them to increase their ratings, and we collude by paying so much attention to the glossy features, the exclusive interviews, and the various scandals and intrigues. They have no reason to object to invasions of their private lives because this just keeps their names on everyone's lips, which is all that really matters.

To become a celebrity it is more important to have a good press agent than it is to be a big achiever, which is one of the reasons why figures from the worlds of light entertainment and sports are some of the most successful celebrities. It is in these fields that being a household name is the key to clinching the next big contract and the next lucrative advertising deal. With cleverly crafted media events in which managers collaborate with magazine editors and programme directors it is possible to give these figures a level of exposure which is out of all proportion to their actual achievements.

For many people, the heroes of the past were an inspiration, they broadened our horizons by giving us an example of a course of action that could be considered noble. Celebrities, on the other hand, with the string of stories about their hardships and their lucky breaks, their affairs and their break-ups, prove to be nothing out of the ordinary. Reading about their lives does not inspire us or fill us with purpose. If it isn't just an idle diversion — a way of killing time — it may well help us to resign ourselves to our own sense of purposelessness. It may be fun, but perhaps something that helped to raise the tone of public life has been lost.
