Languages of publication
The main question posed in the article is whether the application of „role play" technics in therapy, various trainings or education justifies „role playing games". The conclusion of the article is that there is a singnificant difference between the aim of RPG and other applications of „role playing" technics. Moreover the great influence the role playing games may have on personality lead me to a further inąuiry into the message they convey. After having done such an inquiry I came to a conclusion that RPG does not favour proper development of personality and shaping a positive attitude towards the world. These games may also interfere with proper development of conscience. The conceptions, ideas, pseudo-scientific theories and the approach to specific situations in the game shape a improper attitudes towards situations in real life. Reflections presented in the article concern only the main principles of the RPG. The article does not treat of some other apects of role playing games concerning their contents and meaning. These aspects and materials mentioned in that part would need a more thorough study and another article. If, as my research indicates, the increase of interest in RPG is a fact the whole issue would need a further surveying and exploration.
