I need help on an essay concerning the works of Freud?
Explain, analyze, and evaluate freud’s critique of “love thy neighbor as thyself” what does he think is the origin/cause of his command? How does he evaluate it?
I found this that might help you:
An ideal demand is “love thy neighbor as you love yourself”. If you do not follow this then your neighbor becomes an object of your aggression. This means that we have to control two instincts, the pleasure and the aggression. The only thing that stops aggression is the sense of guilt. Eros is controlled by the pleasure principle, which binds people together and the community grows. Thanatos is the death drive, this causes destruction and death. Freud also believes that these two are the same.
