Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization, and helped make us who we are.
Freud's epoch-making insights revolutionized our perception of the self, forming the foundations for psychoanalysis; here he presents his theory of an innate 'death drive' - arguing that civilization distorts natural aggression to impose a terrible burden of guilt upon us.
