Product Description

Penguin has selected 20 revolutionary books that have changed the world.They've been repackaged and are being offered at a great price point - £3.99.Major tie-in deal with national newspaper to get the country voting for their favourite.Visionary, enlightening and radical - READ THE REVOLUTION.'Civilization overcomes the dangerous aggressivity of the individual, by weakening him, disarming him and setting up an internal authority to watch over him, like a garrison in a conquered town'.Freud's epoch-making insights revolutionized our perception of the self, forming the foundation 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.Sigmund Freud was born in 1856 and died in exile in London in 1939. As a writer and doctor he remains one of the informing voices of the twentieth century.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.
