291) 46 THE POLITICS OF PSYCHOANALYSIS Love has its prototype in the earliest exclusive bond with the parent, it is not some air freshener to be sprayed around, a sanitised mist reviving optimism and fellow feeling. It cannot, therefore, be used unaltered in the interests of civilisation, because it is always threatening to break up that civilisation into smaller units. Parenthetically, this is one of the subversive aspects of women's role in the Freudian world view: women represent the sexual impulse; more prosaically, they are always trying to reclaim their menfolk from the clutches of the work of building culture (which forces men to 'carry out instinctual sublimations of which women are little capable' - Freud, 1930, p.
But it is worth noting here some grounds for contention. For instance, many critics of Freud have taken issue with what they regard as his mechanistic approach to human functioning. In the same way that the instinct theory is criticised for being too biologistic, so the structural theory is opposed as too impersonal, the stuff of physics rather than psychology (d. Guntrip, 1973). The id, in particular, is a focus of antagonism: how can a personal psychology be constructed out of material which places at the centre of human functioning an 'it', something outside and beyond us, in principle beyond control?

But more of that later: the main point here is that love is doomed because society requires multiple, sanitised relationships and because it needs the energy that might be put into sex to be diverted instead to the task of building culture. The story of how this doom is lived out, how society organises human sexuality, is the heart of psychoanalytic theory and its most radical assertion.
