Summary/Abstract: According to the main thesis of this article, repetition in one of the main mechanisms of ideological influence. Thanks to that circular motion, the ideological images can be effectively instilled into people’s bodies and minds. Because of the phenomenon of totalization, ideology is melting into different spheres of social life (it cease to be the case of philosophy alone) and throughout another repetitions its impact is strengthened. Thanks to this, the whole process is functioning outside the consciousness of the subject. The reconstruction of described phenomenon is based on the theories of the four thinkers linked to the marxist/post-marxist tradition.
