Abstract: The Freudian Concept of Society and Beyond is the first time when he discusses and analyses the Freudians theory and concepts in his work. The aim of this article is to clarify the terms of this criticism, to explain the intrinsic veracity less than the significance for Elias's work, and to propose the violence on the body as an effect of the rupture on the relationship between individual and society.
