Civilization and Its Discontents

"Civilization and Its Discontents" is a book by Sigmund Freud, and is widely accepted as one of his most important works. Within it, he lists what he considers as the primary tensions between civilization and the individual. The chief tension, he maintains, originates from the individual's search for freedom and civilization's opposing requirement of conformity and repression. This text is recommended for anyone with a keen interest in psychology, and it would make for a great addition to collections of related literature. Sigmund Freud (1856 - 1939) was an Austrian neurologist widely considered to be the father of psychoanalysis. Many antiquarian books like this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
