    In this monograph, Freud describes the psychological mechanisms at work within mass movements. According to Freud, the individual in a mass movement acquires a sense of infinite power to act on impulses that would otherwise have been restrained in the individual. This is accompanied by a loss of conscious personality so that the mass is controlled almost exclusively by the unconscious.

    An important notion that Søren Kierkegaard explored is Øieblikket, translated as "the moment" or "the blink of an eye". It consists of an actual experience in the individual’s life, yet it cannot be understood as a mere link in the chain of successive moments.

    Kierkegaard discusses Genesis 22:1-18, the story of Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son Isaac. He notes that Abraham was all willing to sacrifice his son in the name of god, without tears or complaint; he simply obeyed. He argues that faith requires passion - something that Abraham clearly had and that you must experience it yourself or you could never truly understand.

    In this 1921 work, Freud argues that dreams provide insight into the unconscious mind. In his view, dreams are attempts by the unconscious to resolve conflicts. He calls the most significant component of dreams the "dream-work" which is rooted in unconscious desires that manifest in conscious behavior.

    This 1920 essay by Sigmund Freud is considered to be one of his most complex writings. "Beyond the Pleasure Principle" marks a major departure in his theoretical approach. Freud had previously attributed most human behaviour to the sexual instinct (Eros or libido). In this essay, he went beyond the pleasure principle by adding the death drive (thanatos) as another instigator of human behavior.

    Kierkegaard was a fierce critic of the Hegelianism of his time and of what he viewed as the empty formalities of the Danish church. He denied Hegel’s insistence on logic within the realm of religion by stating that many doctrines of Christianity cannot be explained with rational thought. Kierkegaard insisted that there is truth in faith that facts are inadequate to elucidate.

    Francis Bourdillon reflects on the gifts sent to us by God. As described in the Psalms, gifts can have altogether different meanings and only the truly faithful will be able to understand its worth. Afflictions, though often seen as a plague, are in his mind to be understood as a veiled gift, with a value that requires a greater depth of belief to comprehend.

    Francis Bourdillon reflects on the term “light affliction” and how, for most of us, some afflictions may not be light at all. He refers to the apostle Paul who described his own afflictions not only as light, but as short as well and invites every true Christian to follow this path. Even though Paul’s trials were many and were neither short nor light, he feels resolved in approaching them as mere trifles since suffering is temporary and divine glory is eternal.
