Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization, and helped make us who we are.

Our customer reviews

Awesome price-quality deal. Freud's analysis on culture and its discontents is still very accurate. I fully recommend this book, and this edition (it appears to be a really good translation; ideas are very clear).show more
