Though Freud never makes utopia the subject of any one work, this book is an attempt to tease out Freud's notion of utopia through examination of his group-psychology works such as The Future of an Illusion, Civilization and Its Discontents, Why War? and On the Question of a Weltanschauung. Through tracing out three key blows to human narcissism through scientific advance, it shows the extent to which biological factors impact human psychology and influence the prospect of future human happiness-the triumph of ego over id.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Fluent, engaging and highly informative, Holowchak's wide-ranging study sheds a great deal of welcome light on the place of Freud in our contemporary culture. -- John Cottingham, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, University of Reading
To provide a concise general account of psychoanalysis that offers both originality and insight, and to clearly present Freud's defense of reason in defiance of all that challenges his Stoicism (and ours), makes Freud and Utopia an important contribution. -- Alfred Tauber, author of Freud, the Reluctant Philosopher
