The aim of the present work is to show how, in the era of post-modernity, we are witnessing the concealment of the Shadow, to be understood as the dissolution of the tension between opposites. This disintegration makes difficult the same thinkability of the Shadow, and therefore our possibility to became aware of it. The text traces in outline the history of this transformation, questioning the thought of nihilism, the psychology of narcissism, the development of the techniques of mass communication, the expansion of the so-called "virtual reality": all factors that have fueled the spirit of post-modernity.
Keywords: Shadow, nihilism, narcissism, post-modernity, image
