Summary In Civilization and Its Discontents Freud extends and clarifies his analysis of religion, analyzes human unhappiness in contemporary civilization, ratifies the critical importance of the death drive theory, and contemplates the significance of guilt and conscience in everyday life. The result is Freud's most expansive work, where he discusses mysticism, love, interpretation, narcissism, religion, happiness, technology, beauty, justice, work, the origin of civilization, phylogenetic development, Christianity, the Devil, communism, the sense of guilt, remorse, and ethics.
