In Beyond the Pleasure Principle PDF, Freud went on to develop what became known as the “structural theory” of the brain. This theory identifies two fundamental impulses, libido or Live impulses, this is the instinct for survival, and the impulsive force of Death, the destructive instinct; These two impulses grapple with each other to win each of us. The theory also shows that the three central structures of the brain: Id, ego, and super-ego, all three are at least partly in the unconscious. Three years later, in this booklet, Freud addressed the important contents of these concepts. The Ego and the Id must be considered Freud’s most significant work in the later years of his life. Although completely theoretical, Freud, through his own preface, told it to be “closer to psychoanalysis”, that is, closer to the experience of therapy, than it was written before it in the years 1920.
It is also worth noting that he was able to take the title of the booklet is The Ego, the Id, and the Super-ego, because he also gave many details about Super-ego. But the center of his discussion is actually Ego, he sees it struggling with three powers: Id and Super-ego inside, and the outside world. Freud did not completely come to conclusions about the questions about the power of these structures – much of that work and the contents associated with them were followed by theorists behind him such as Heinz Hartmann, Ernst Kris, and Rudolph Loewenstein solve – but in this book, Freud see ego as a rider, he went to the place he rode horses (Id) want to go to.
