Is the death drive just another word for destructiveness which good therapies or drug regimes might be able to dispose of? Can we ever consider the death drive outside the context of twentieth century culture- a culture of unbounded positivity haunted by its own deferred death? Rob Weatherill brings Freud's most controversial and neglected concept of the death drive into sharp focus. He takes us on a fascinating journey through Freud's initial speculations, the writing of Klein and Bion, bringing us right up to date with the contemporary work in biology, Lacanian psychoanalysis, and the work of Jean Baudrillard.
