Hey you il/lit/erate losers!
I'm writing an essay on Freud for a mid-term in second year university. Here's my thesis:
> The compulsion to repeat in people with traumatic neurosis is a repressed instinct—it is a function of the death drive. In order to help the person transform their fright into anxiety, it fights against the self-preservative instincts which originally repressed the memory of the traumatic situation. It does this because in fright the person’s life is not in their hands and, therefore, neither is their death.
Do you think this is good? Any counter-arguments I should try to discuss?
