Circles of Censorship

Nicholas Harrison

Oxford University Press

It is important to note that the discourses of moral censorship included an implicit notion that censorship may become unnecessary if it is carried out efficiently and in good faith. Censorship is found to supplement self-censorship. Aside from providing standards for its object group, it also offers external reinforcement to the group'S own standards. For the Index, these standards involved Christian morality while for post-revolutionary censorship, only ‘abuses’ would cause conflict as freedom of expression guaranteed Republican values. Freud's notion of censorship had its own milieu, and it is important for historical information regarding this milieu to be identified. This chapter studies Freud's model which involves complementarity and mutual supplementarity of self-censorship and censorship.
