Beyond the Pleasure Principle - Sigmund Freud


This controversial 1920 publication marks a turning point in Freud's theoretical approach. Previously, he considered most behavior attributable to sexual impulses. In this volume, he expands his theory beyond these creative impulses to discuss the impact on human psychology of the death drive, which he defines as an urge inherent in all organic life to restore an earlier state of things.
