  3. 4. Peter Gay, in the Foreword to his Freud-biography: <ul><li>“ In my judgment, he saw the human animal more clearly, and more justly, than did anyone else. </li></ul><ul><li>He recognized that humans—all humans—must face the dilemma of civilization. </li></ul><ul><li>For civilization is at once humankind’s greatest achievement and its greatest tragedy. </li></ul><ul><li>It requires individuals to control their impulses, deny their wishes, limit their lusts.” </li></ul>
  4. 5. Themroc
  5. 6. Peter Gay, in the Foreword to his Freud-biography: <ul><li>“ In Freud’s wise and disillsuioned perspective, people cannot live without the restraint that civilization imposes, but they cannot live really freely within those restraints. </li></ul><ul><li>Frustration and unhappiness are part of human fate. </li></ul><ul><li>The most significant, and most overlooked, aspect of education is its negative aspects; </li></ul><ul><li>it teaches the child what not to do, what not to ask for, even what not to imagine.” </li></ul>
  6. 7. HW for tomorrow: <ul><li>Step 1: </li></ul><ul><li>Make a shopping list (8 to 12 items). </li></ul><ul><li>On day 6 of Creation, the construction of the human mind (not: brain!) has been outsourced to you; </li></ul><ul><li>what parts (like thoughts, ideas…) do you need to get from the celestial supermarket? </li></ul><ul><li>Step 2: Think about in which departments you’ll find your items (= categorize them). </li></ul><ul><li>Step 3: Think about what your items may consist of. What material are they made from? Is there something like the most basic ingredient(s)? </li></ul>
