This paper explores the use of situationist theory as a specific form of cultural political psychology to address the war on terror. Initially, the paper will introduce situationist theory located within its historical context. Then I will apply the concepts of situationist theory to the events of September 11th and to the notion of ‘the society of the spectacle’. The final section of the article will address the ethical and moral implications of the use of situationist theory in psychology and this paper aims to open up a debate in the discipline for its use as a particular type of psychology.
