Description
 
Unlike the other beasts of the garden, human beings learn to control their sexual & aggressive motions: to distinguish between parents, sexual partners & friends; to acquire a sense of the beautiful & the sublime. Some also learn how to channel this dynamism into the making of beautiful objects. Freud suggested various mechanisms to explain how these capacities, which are the foundation of culture & civilization, are developed. Principal among these is sublimation. In this concise book, British psychoanalyst Kalu Singh introduces this mechanism & related themes & argues for a sense of the moral sublime as the zenith of human development.
