In this essay I ask and research; To what extent do the views of Sigmund Freud.
provide a better insight into the human condition that those of Immanuel Kant by .
the standards of modern day? Immanuel Kant has theories that imply humans have.
a particularly important role, creating a role in life. Sigmund Freud has theories which.
broaden the level of complexion and allow for superior methods to use for more of .
an accurate evaluation of a human/s. Kant is an insight into the human condition as .
a whole, but by Freud being 'better' I mean that he represents a tool for discovering.
parts of the human condition for more of a multi-cultural society which varies in .
behaviour. Both points of view do not represent the basis of the theorists' full work.
I have only used parts of their work to argue. Each theorist has far too much to their .
work for me to use in this limited essay, so instead I am using certain aspects, and .
focussing on them as means of sufficient comparison, to argue my point based on the.
human condition. The body of the essay is constructed with a theory, followed by .
an explanation and an example. The comparisons both go into the human condition. .
Freud's point of view being that humans repress emotions/slash experience, by which.
they unconsciously manifest through their general ego. Kant's theory relise more .
upon the importance of morality as a key part to the human condition. My motives .
for the comparison are to highlight the significance of Freud's theories above those .
of Kant, but at the same time, avoid dismissing Kant's validity.
The human condition remains unspecified and factually unexplained. It is a collection .
of memories, morals, emotions and physical properties, i.e. Love, hate, anger, sorrow,.
judgement, identity, recognition etc. These selected factors of the human condition.
are in co-ordination with why life is dictated by consequence. Freedom and.
determinism are key factors of the human condition.
