    Description
    In his final years, Freud devoted most of his energies to a series of highly ambitious works on the broadest issues of religion and society.

    As early as 1908, he produced a powerful paper on the repressive hypocrisy of "civilised sexual morality", and its role in "modern nervous illness". Deepening this analysis in 'Civilization And Its Discontents', he argues that civilised values - and the impossible ideals of Christianity - inevitably distort our natural aggression and impose a terrible burden of guilt. It is also here that Freud developed his last great theoretical innovation: the strange and haunting notion of an innate death drive, locked in a constant struggle with the forces of Eros.
