Brent Potter - Elements of Self-Destruction

Why are humans, who are motivated by self-preservation, motivated to engage in behaviors that threaten and even extinguish their existence? The themes included in this book are: (1) the emerging understanding of self-destructiveness in culture, religion, philosophy and , (2) Bion’s investigation into the self-destructive capacity of the mind, (3) Heidegger’s ontology of Being and the Enframing of technology, (4) identifying and delineating the "who" who most experiences the impact of human-to-human destructiveness in out contemporary culture.
