Publisher Description

Unforbidden Pleasures is the dazzling new release from Adam Phillips, author of Missing Out and Going Sane.

Adam Phillips takes Oscar Wilde as a springboard for a deep dive into the meanings and importance of the unforbidden, from the fall of our 'first parents', Adam and Eve, to the work of the great 20th-century psychoanalytic thinkers.

Unforbidden pleasures, he argues, are always the ones we tend not to think about, yet when you look into it, it is probable that we get as much pleasure, if not more, from them. And we may have underestimated just how restricted our restrictiveness, in thrall to the forbidden and its rules, may make us.

Adam Phillips' latest ambitious project explores the philosophical, psychological and social complexities that govern human desire and shape our reality.
