  • "The main topic of this book is the irremediable conflict between the demands of the instincts and the restrictions imposed by civilization. The results of this conflict are examined as well as two related problems - the sense of guilt, both conscious and unconscious, and the aggressive or destructive instinct."@en
  • "In what remains one of his most seminal papers, Freud considers the incompatibility of civilisation and individual happiness, and the tensions between the claims of society and the individual. We all know that living in civilised groups means sacrificing a degree of personal interest, but couldn't you argue that it in fact creates the conditions for our happiness? Freud explores the arguments and counter-arguments surrounding this proposition, focusing on what he perceives to be one of society's greatest dangers; 'civilised' sexual morality. After all, doesn't repression of sexuality deeply affect people and compromise their chances of happiness?"@en
  • "This book was first published in English by the Hogarth Press in 1930, the year of the publication of the original German. Its main topic is the irremediable conflict between the demands of the instincts and the restrictions imposed by civilization. The results of this conflict are examined, as well as two related problems--the sense of guilt, both conscious and unconscious, and the aggressive or destructive instinct. For the present edition the translation has been extensively revised and an editor's introduction and a number of explanatory notes and references have been added as well a a full bibliography and index. The text now used has been taken from the Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud."
  • "Originally published in 1930, this book seeks to answer ultimate questions. What influences led to the creation of civilization? How did it come to be? What determines its course? In this classic work, Freud addresses the contest between aggression and eros, and speaks to issues of human creativity and fulfillment, the place of beauty in culture, and the effects of repression."
