I have an obnoxious Great Books project due on Wednesday on Freud’s Civilization and its Discontents. While I’d like to bludgeon Freud over the head right now with a heavy object as he is the reason for my academic suffering right now, that might just affirm his idea of humans having a natural instinct of aggression – and I really do not want to give him the satisfaction.
While I don’t necessarily agree with much, if any of what Freud says and this book is filled with problems, it seems to make sense. So, yeah.
While being forced to apply Freudian concepts to a children’s story probably made for the worst discussion to date in my current English class, other than that sexual blip in the Freudian road, it’s going to be okay.
So I’m going to sell my soul to Mortimer Adler and pray to the gods, (whom supposedly do not exist and are just man’s creation as to have purpose) that I get a good grade. Peace, yo.TweetPin It Now!
