So I have started reading a book called Introduction to Psychology and inevitably, I came across Sigmund Freud and his Theory of the Unconscious.
So Mr Freud developed the psycho-analytic perspective: the theory that states how much we think, feel and act result from unconscious processes. Now here's the part the puzzled me. Freud states that there are unlearned biological instincts buried deep within our unconscious. These instincts, he says, include sexual and aggressive impulses and apparently motivate our actions. But what are these "impulses" exactly and why must we struggle to control these to conform with society's rules?
If someone could enlighten me on this matter, I'd appreciate it very much.
