Contemporary debates about the Freudian notion of superego are focused, highlighting the importance of this notion regarding both psychoanalytic clinic and psychoanalytic theory of culture. Different versions of the relationship between superego and moral conscience, as well as between superego and ego ideal are identifyed. Points of convergence and divergence between the Kantian categorical imperative and the superego are discussed.
