S1GMUND FREUD / ST3VEN CR0SSLEY - CIVIL1ZATION AND ITS D1SC0NTENTS (2011)

Perhaps more important for our own purposes here at OWOD are Freud's late works, where he suggests the larger ideological underpinnings of psychology and hints at their reification in material life, as well as their psycho-social affects. The "dream-states" of "Discontents" (1930) are of course our illusions and delusions, our anxieties and irrational drives in the face of social constraint...the Subject under pressure.

For fellow Lovers of listening to works reading-aloud, the audiobook of James Strachey's 1961 translation. (To read along, the Strachey PDF.)

Lastly, because we can, we offer a PDF of the The Future of an Illusion (1927).
