Chapter II) What is the “purpose of human life”?  Why is there “no possibility at all of its being carried through”?  From what “three directions” are we “threatened with suffering”?  What are some of the “palliative measures” men and women take to “bear” life’s “pains, disappointments and impossible tasks”?  Why do most of these measures turn out to be based on “illusions”?  Is Freud right?
