UNTITLED PROJECT ABOUT SOMETHING DISTURBING
AN INTERACTIVE ONLINE PERFORMANCE
'In the first place, I suspect that the reader has the impression that our discussions on the sense of guilt disrupt the framework of this essay: that they take up too much space, so that the rest of its subject-matter, with which they are not always closely connected, is pushed to one side. This may have spoilt the structure of my paper; but it corresponds faithfully to my intention to represent the sense of guilt as the most important problem in the development of civilization and to show that the price we pay for our advance in civilization is a loss of happiness through the heightening of the sense of guilt. Anything that still sounds strange about this statement, which is the final conclusion of our investigation, can probably be traced to the quite peculiar relationship -as yet completely unexplained- which the sense of guilt has to our consciousness'.
S.Freud, The Civilization and its Discontents, Ch. VIII.
