Read online Civilization and Its Discontents.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Civilization and Its Discontents It stands as a brilliant summary of the views on culture from a psychoanalytic perspective that he had been developing since the turn of the century It is both witness and tribute to the late theory of mind the so called structural theory with its stress on aggression indeed the death drive as the pitiless adversary of eros .

em Civilization and Its Discontents em is one of the last of Freud s books written in the decade before his death and first published in German in In it he states his views on the broad question of man s place in the world a place Freud defines in terms of ceaseless conflict between the individual s quest for freedom and society s demand for conformity .

Freud s theme is that what works for civilization doesn t necessarily work for man Man by nature aggressive and egotistical seeks self satisfaction But culture inhibits his instinctual drives The result is a pervasive and familiar guilt .

Of the various English translations of Freud s major works to appear in his lifetime only one was authorized by Freud himself em The Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud em under the general editorship of James Strachey .

Freud approved the overall editorial plan specific renderings of key words and phrases and the addition of valuable notes from bibliographical and explanatory Many of the translations were done by Strachey himself the rest were prepared under his supervision The result was to place the em Standard Edition em in a position of unquestioned supremacy over all other existing versions by Sigmund Freud, James Strachey, Peter Gay
