Mr. Hyde’s self- destructive and aggressive behavior proves that he not only follows the pleasure principal but also the death drive, which is commonly called “Thanatos”. It states that all human have an unconscious desire for death. Sigmund Freud opines, “ the goal of life is death”.

Therefore, many of these individuals feel as though any act of behaving badly will merely be overlooked or covered up. This effect manifests itself from debauchery to blood doping; from Ponzi schemes to molestation; and when these ruthless acts disregard integrity, all of us are impacted—not merely Bill Clinton and Barry
It is the entire reason why the film exists and why Andrew Beckett sued his former employer; simultaneously succeeding in life as well as in death. The mental state of mind that identifies what people did, how they contribute to society or how they don’t contribute to society, is characterized by what functionalism is.

The title of one of his major novels is The Insulted and Injured, the heroine of which is Natasha, who suffers and makes her beloved suffer. Dostoyevsky’s novels center on the topic of man as a subject of his atmosphere.
