Overview

A previous edition of this book is cited in Books for College Libraries, 3d ed.. Editor Louis Menand (English and American literature, Harvard U.) says that this classic, like many others, no longer has any credibility as an account of reality, but has so widely influenced people that thinking about reality without taking it into account is now impossible. Ungehagen in der Kultur was published in 1930, nine years before Freud died, and reflects the shift late in his career from problems of the individual to problems of culture.
