    The thesis takes a look at the phenomenon of narcissistic personality disorders, with the main focus on the role of contemporary education in their development. In this respect, we analyse how relations from the early childhood influence the development of such disorders. At the beginning, I introduce the myth of Narcissus, followed by the main theories of narcissism, since a definition of narcissism cannot leave out psychoanalysis. We continue with a definition of permissive education, which is characteristic for present-day education. The criteria of permissiveness are also listed to ease further analysis of which characteristics of permissive education correspond with the mechanism of the development of narcissistic disorders. The theoretical part brings a conclusion on how permissive education influences the development of narcissistic disorders. The roles of mother and father in this are also presented. Since human personality is shaped notably by the society, it is also important to include the social aspect, highlighting the role of society in pathological narcissism. The practical part supplements the conclusions with an analysis of interviews with two experts in different areas. I find their contribution very valuable, as it shows first-hand experience with narcissistic disorders in practice and the role of experts in dealing with them.
