Description :  <b>From the legendary psychoanalyst who wrote <i>The Art of Loving</i> and <i>Escape from Freedom</i>: A profound critique of materialism in favor of living with meaning.</b><br /> &#xa0;Life in the modern age began when people no longer lived at the mercy of nature and instead took control of it. We planted crops so we didn’t have to forage, and produced planes, trains, and cars for transport. With televisions and computers, we don’t have to leave home to see the world. Somewhere in that process, the natural tendency of humankind went from one of being and of practicing our own human abilities and powers, to one of having by possessing objects and using tools that replace our own powers to think, feel, and act independently. Fromm argues that positive change—both social and economic—will come from being, loving, and sharing.&#xa0;<i>This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.</i><br /> “Erich Fromm is both a psychologist of penetration and a writer of ability.” —<i>Chicago Tribune</i><br /> Erich Fromm (1900–1980) was a bestselling psychoanalyst and social philosopher whose views about alienation, love, and sanity in society—discussed in his books such as <i>Escape from Freedom</i>,<i> The Art of Loving</i>,<i> The Sane Society</i>,and <i>To Have or To Be?</i>—helped shape the landscape of psychology in the mid-twentieth century.

Description :  <b>Why do people choose authoritarianism over freedom? The classic study of the psychological appeal of fascism by a <i>New York Times</i>–bestselling author.</b><br /> &#xa0;The pursuit of freedom has indelibly marked Western culture since Renaissance humanism and Protestantism began the fight for individualism and self-determination. This freedom, however, can make people feel unmoored, and is often accompanied by feelings of isolation, fear, and the loss of self, all leading to a desire for authoritarianism, conformity, or destructiveness.&#xa0;It is not only the question of freedom that makes Fromm’s debut book a timeless classic. In this examination of the roots of Nazism and fascism in Europe, Fromm also explains how economic and social constraints can also lead to authoritarianism.<br /><br /> By the author of <i>The Sane Society</i> and <i>The Anatomy of Human Destructiveness</i>, this is a fascinating examination of the anxiety that underlies our darkest impulses, an enlightening volume perfect for readers of Eric Hoffer or Hannah Arendt.<br /> &#xa0;<i>This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.</i>&#xa0;“An analysis par excellence of our cultural neurosis.” —<i>The Nation</i><br /> “An important and challenging work.” —<i>New York Herald Tribune</i><br /><br /> “Fromm’s thought merits the critical attention of all concerned with the human condition and its future.” —<i>The Washington Post</i>&#xa0;Erich Fromm (1900–1980) was a bestselling psychoanalyst and social philosopher whose views about alienation, love, and sanity in society—discussed in his books such as&#xa0;<i>Escape from Freedom</i>,<i>&#xa0;The Art of Loving</i>,<i>&#xa0;The Sane Society</i>, and&#xa0;<i>To Have or To Be?</i>—helped shape the landscape of psychology in the mid-twentieth century.

Description :  <b>“There is no meaning to life except the meaning man gives his life by the unfolding of his powers.” —Erich Fromm</b><br />Are we primarily determined by nature or nurture? What are the best ways that people can live productively? In&#xa0;<i>Man for Himself</i>, renowned social philosopher Erich Fromm posits: With the gifts of self-consciousness and imagination, any individual can give his or her own unique answer. This answer is rooted in our human nature, and should correspond to mankind’s powers of reason and love. Therefore, Fromm reasons, “living itself is an art.”&#xa0;In his humanistic concept of man, Fromm describes various character orientations that are to be found in Western culture. For the first time, Fromm analyzes the parallels between economic concepts of market value and how we value others and ourselves—the idea of personality as a commodity. He argues for a return to humanistic ethics, and discusses issues such as the question of conscience, of selfishness and self-love, and of pleasure and happiness.&#xa0;This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.&#xa0;“A fascinating volume . . . magnificent in its implications.”—<i>Saturday Review</i>&#xa0;<br /><br />“Courageous and thoughtful . . .

Description :  "Human history began with an act of disobedience, and it is not unlikely that it will be terminated by an act of obedience."<br /><br />One of the great psychological and social philosophers of the twentieth century, Erich Fromm expounded on the importance of disobedience and the authentic voice of the individual in modern culture.

Release Date :  2013-10-31
Description :  <i>El arte de amar</i> es una obra con la que Erich Fromm ha ayudado a varias generaciones a reflexionar sobre el amor y a responder a algunas preguntas aparentemente sencillas: ¿qué significa <i>amar</i>? ¿Cómo desprendernos de nosotros mismos para experimentar este sentimiento…?<br /> Fromm nos explica que el amor no es sólo una relación personal, sino un rasgo de madurez que se manifiesta en diversas formas: amor erótico, amor fraternal, amor filial, amor a uno mismo…<br /> Nos dice también que el amor no es algo pasajero y mecánico, como a veces nos induce a creer la sociedad de hoy. Muy al contrario, el amor es un arte, el fruto de un aprendizaje. Por ello, si queremos aprender a amar debemos actuar como lo haríamos si quisiéramos aprender cualquier otro arte, ya sea la música, la pintura, la carpintería o el arte de la medicina. O, por lo menos, no dedicar nuestra energía a lograr el éxito y el dinero, el prestigio y el poder, sino a cultivar el verdadero arte de amar.

Description :  <b>Three fascinating examinations of the psychology of political power from the <i>New York Times</i></b><b>–</b><b>bestselling author of <i>The Art of Loving</i></b><b>.</b><br /><br /> Philosopher and social theorist Erich Fromm is renowned as “a psychologist of penetration and a writer of ability” (<i>Chicago Tribune</i>). In these three riveting works, Fromm sheds light on some of the most critical dilemmas facing humanity.<br /> &#xa0;<br /><i>Escape from Freedom</i>: Though freedom has been a prized value in Western culture for centuries, it is often accompanied by feelings of anxiety and powerlessness. Fromm’s compelling study demonstrates how these feelings of alienation can lead to a desire for conformity and authoritarianism, bringing invaluable insight into the rise of Nazism and fascism in Europe.<br /> &#xa0;<br /><i>To Have or To Be?: </i>Life in the modern age began when people no longer lived at the mercy of nature and instead took control of it. Fromm argues that through the process of modern materialism, the natural tendency of humankind moved away from practicing human abilities, and instead focused on possessing objects. Humankind therefore began using tools that replace our own powers to think, feel, and act independently. Fromm argues that positive change—both social and economic—will come from being, loving, and sharing.<br /> &#xa0;<br /><i>The Anatomy of Human Destructiveness</i>: This classic study makes a distinction between animal aggression and certain forms of destructiveness that can only be found in human beings.

Description :  <b>Who was the real Karl Marx?</b><br />In the Western world, and especially in the United States, Karl Marx is perceived as the spiritual godfather of Lenin and Stalin—someone bent on creating a state where everyone worships a centralized bureaucracy. Social philosopher Erich Fromm argues that Marx has been entirely misrepresented and misunderstood, and that Marx’s ideas have been misappropriated to further causes antithetical to his true intentions.&#xa0;Fromm’s study presents Marx as a humanist and social scientist. Painstakingly traveling through Marx’s oeuvre, Fromm shows how Marx’s real goal was to eliminate man’s alienation, and allow individuals to live and appreciate a life of freedom. Furthermore, Fromm believes, Marx would have considered the Communist governments of Russia and Cuba as wrong-headed.&#xa0;<i>Marx’s Concept of Man</i>&#xa0;also includes a selection of Marx’s&#xa0;<i>Early Writings</i>, brought to English-speaking readers for the first time in 1961.&#xa0;This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm, with rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.&#xa0;“Erich Fromm is both a psychologist of penetration and a writer of ability.” —<i>Chicago Tribune</i>&#xa0;Erich Fromm (1900–1980) was a bestselling psychoanalyst and social philosopher whose views about alienation, love, and sanity in society—discussed in his books such as&#xa0;<i>Escape from Freedom</i>,<i>&#xa0;The Art of Loving</i>,<i>&#xa0;The Sane Society</i>, and&#xa0;<i>To Have or To Be?</i>—helped shape the landscape of psychology in the mid-twentieth century.

Suzuki, the most famous Zen Buddhist master in the Western world, to a seminar at his new home in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Their discussion was one of the highlights of Fromm’s life, and the paper Fromm presented (and later expanded into a book) was a watershed work. Fromm demonstrates his mastery of the philosophy and practice of Zen, perfectly articulating how Zen tenets fit into the ideas of psychoanalysis. In this text, he creates new perspectives on both systems of thought.&#xa0;This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.&#xa0;“Erich Fromm is both a psychologist of penetration and a writer of ability.” —<i>Chicago Tribune</i>&#xa0;<br />Erich Fromm (1900–1980) was a bestselling psychoanalyst and social philosopher whose views about alienation, love, and sanity in society—discussed in his books such as&#xa0;<i>Escape from Freedom</i>,<i>&#xa0;The Art of Loving</i>,<i>&#xa0;The Sane Society</i>, and&#xa0;<i>To Have or To Be?</i>—helped shape the landscape of psychology in the mid-twentieth century.

Description :  <b>An insightful look at alienation in the modern world from the <i>New York Times</i>–bestselling author of <i>The Art of Loving</i> and <i>Escape from Freedom</i>.</b><br /><br /> Social psychologist Erich Fromm observed the spread of alienation in the 1960s, arguing that humans who were once dynamic, creative beings were reduced to fixating on TV screens, emotionally paralyzed by anxieties over threats like nuclear war. Though we may stare at different devices and worry about other dangers today, his insights are as useful as ever, and allow us to gain perspective on the human condition.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> A collection of his writings on “New Humanism” and the need to reclaim our happiness and peace of mind, this is a thoughtful, fascinating overview of the past that shaped us, and the philosophies and practices that can ensure a better future, both for ourselves and for the world at large. Included are reflections on thinkers from Karl Marx to medieval Catholic mystic Meister Eckhart, as “Fromm’s large, keen mind and attractive, likable voice [strive] for heart as he asks himself the hardest questions of his day” (<i>Kirkus Reviews</i>).<br /> &#xa0;<i>This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.</i>&#xa0;Erich Fromm (1900–1980) was a bestselling psychoanalyst and social philosopher whose views about alienation, love, and sanity in society—discussed in his books such as <i>Escape from Freedom</i>,<i> The Art of Loving</i>,<i> The Sane Society</i>,and <i>To Have or To Be?</i>—helped shape the landscape of psychology in the mid-twentieth century.

Author : Erich Fromm
Genre :  Social Science  Books  Nonfiction 
Price :  $5.99
Release Date :  2013-12-28
Description :  “La libertad positiva implica también el principio de que no existe poder superior al del yo individual; que el hombre representa el centro y el fin de la vida, que el desarrollo y la realización de la individualidad constituyen un fin que no puede ser nunca subordinado a propósitos a los que se atribuye una finalidad mayor.” En este libro, Fromm analiza la situación del hombre en la moderna sociedad industrial y la paradójica noción de libertad/ esclavitud que se produce al liberarse de los vínculos de la sociedad tradicional, cayendo preso de las nuevas trampas del consumo y la estandarización cultural. Los ensayos de Erich Fromm son un referente del humanismo cultural del que han disfrutado innumerables generaciones de lectores. El miedo a la libertad es un análisis de la sociedad de consumo cuya lucidez y profundidad siguen vigentes en la actualidad.

Description :  <b>Renowned social psychologist Erich Fromm’s classic study of Freud’s most important—and controversial—ideas</b><br />Bestselling philosopher and psychoanalyst Erich Fromm contends that the principle behind Freud’s work—the wellspring from which psychoanalysis flows—boils down to one well-known belief: “And the truth shall set you free.” The healing power of truth is what Freud used to cure depression and anxiety, cutting through repression and rationalizations, and it provided the foundation for modern psychology.&#xa0;Freud’s work, however, was not without its flaws. Though he pioneered many of the practices still in use today, Freud’s perspective was imperfect. In <i>Greatness and Limitation of Freud’s Thought</i>, Fromm deepens the understanding of Freud by highlighting not just his remarkable insights, but also his flaws, on topics ranging from dreams to sexuality. &#xa0;This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.<br />“Erich Fromm is both a psychologist of penetration and a writer of ability.” —<i>Chicago Tribune</i><br />Erich Fromm (1900–1980) was a bestselling psychoanalyst and social philosopher whose views about alienation, love, and sanity in society—discussed in his books such as <i>Escape from Freedom</i>,<i> The Art of Loving</i>,<i> The Sane Society</i>,and <i>To Have or To Be?</i>—helped shape the landscape of psychology in the mid-twentieth century.

This also gives us access to what we, and our society, usually repress. Fromm shares the history of dream interpretations, and demonstrates his analysis of many types of dreams.&#xa0;This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.&#xa0;

Human passions and their effects have to be explained differently than Freud did, and psychoanalysis must be revised to accommodate this—a fact Fromm explains in his typically brilliant way.

Genre :  Philosophy  Books  Nonfiction 
Price :  $16.99
Release Date :  2013-10-24
Description :  Erich Fromm (1900 - 1980) is widely regarded as one of the most important psychoanalytical thinkers of the 20th century. Besides his influence on modern psychology, he was also a key member of the Frankfurt School, and became one of the founders of the socialist humanist movement. In publishing Marx's Concept of Man in 1961, Fromm presented to the English-speaking world for the first time Karl Marx's then recently discovered Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts. Including the Manuscripts and many other philosophical writings by Marx as well as Fromm's own extended response, many of these writings have since become recognised as important works in their own right. Fromm stresses Marx's humanist philosophy and challenges both contemporary Western ignorance of Marx and Soviet corruptions of his work. Fromm's analysis of Marx's work and his dissemination of these neglected writings by Marx himself fundamentally altered the prevailing discourse about Marxism, revolutionising contemporary thought and providing a formative influence for the development of the New Left.

Et si nos relations amoureuses échouent, c'est bien souvent parce que " nous n'avons pas trouvé la bonne personne ". <br />Pour Erich Fromm, éminent psychanalyste d'après-guerre, l'amour, qu'il soit parental, fraternel, érotique ou amour de soi, est un art. Et comme tout art, il s'apprend et se cultive. Apprendre à aimer, c'est prendre conscience de sa place dans la société ; c'est comprendre qu'en se tournant vers l'autre, on explore ses propres ressources ; c'est aussi, paradoxalement, réaliser que c'est en s'aimant soi-même qu'on se rend libre. <br /><br /> Accessible, profondément humaniste, <i>L'Art d'aimer</i> est un ouvrage majeur, un classique indispensable, plus que jamais en résonance avec notre époque.

Price :  Free
Release Date :  2015-08-13
Description :  Der Beitrag ''Der Mensch ist kein Ding'' wurde von Fromm selbst als einer seiner wichtigsten Aufsätze angesehen (weshalb er immer wieder auf ihn verweist). Es gehe darum, die Psychologie in ihrer Begrenztheit zu sehen, statt den Menschen psychologisch ''dingfest'' machen zu wollen und wie eine Reiz-Reaktionsmaschine zu begreifen. Fromms Hauptthese lautet: Das ''legitime Ziel der Psychologie ist ein negatives: die Beseitigung von Entstellungen und Illusionen, nicht ein positives, nämlich die volle und ganze Kenntnis des menschlichen Wesens''. Gerade die Psychologie stehe in der Gefahr, den Menschen zu verdinglichen, wenn sie sich nicht als ''negative Psychologie'' verstehe.<br /><br /> Erich Fromm, Psychoanalytiker, Sozialpsychologe und Autor zahlreicher aufsehenerregender Werke, wurde 1900 in Frankfurt am Main geboren. Der promovierte Soziologe und praktizierende Psychoanalytiker widmete sich zeitlebens der Frage, was Menschen ähnlich denken, fühlen und handeln lässt. Er verband soziologisches und psychologisches Denken. Anfang der Dreißiger Jahre war er mit seinen Theorien zum autoritären Charakter der wichtigste Ideengeber der sogenannten ''Frankfurter Schule'' um Max Horkheimer. 1934 emigrierte Fromm in die USA. Dort hatte er verschiedene Professuren inne und wurde 1941 mit seinem Buch ''Die Furcht vor der Freiheit'' weltbekannt. Von 1950 bis 1973 lebte und lehrte er in Mexiko, von wo aus er nicht nur das Buch ''Die Kunst des Liebens'' schrieb, sondern auch das Buch ''Wege aus einer kranken Gesellschaft''. Immer stärker nahm der humanistische Denker Fromm auf die Politik der Vereinigten Staaten Einfluss und engagierte sich in der Friedensbewegung. Die letzten sieben Jahre seines Lebens verbrachte er in Locarno in der Schweiz. Dort entstand das Buch ''Haben oder Sein''. In ihm resümierte Fromm seine Erkenntnisse über die seelischen Grundlagen einer neuen Gesellschaft. Am 18. März 1980 ist Fromm in Locarno gestorben.

Description :  <b>How to unlock the secret of happiness&#xa0;</b><br /><br /> As Fromm points out, ours is “a life&#xa0;<i>between</i>&#xa0;having and being”—between mere&#xa0;<i>having</i>&#xa0;and healthy&#xa0;<i>being</i>, between destructiveness and creativity, between narcissism and productive self-understanding, between passivity and the joy of positive activity.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> The alternatives of&#xa0;<i>having</i>&#xa0;and&#xa0;<i>being</i>&#xa0;are basic orientations of our character and determine our behavior. The mostly unpublished and unknown texts featured in&#xa0;<i>The Essential Fromm</i>&#xa0;encapsulate Fromm’s views on the fulfilling life. To put down roots yet remain free is what the late Erich Fromm called the art of&#xa0;<i>being</i>. It is the secret of happiness.<br /><br /> “Erich Fromm is both a psychologist of penetration and a writer of ability.” —<i>Chicago Tribune</i><br /><br /> Erich Fromm (1900–1980) was a bestselling psychoanalyst and social philosopher whose views about alienation, love, and sanity in society—discussed in his books such as&#xa0;<i>Escape from Freedom</i>,<i>&#xa0;The Art of Loving</i>,<i>&#xa0;The Sane Society</i>, and&#xa0;<i>To Have or To Be?</i>—helped shape the landscape of psychology in the mid-twentieth century.

49 Das Wesen der Träume

Author : Erich Fromm
Genre :  Psychology  Books  Health, Mind & Body 
Price :  Free
Release Date :  2016-02-01
Description :  Der Beitrag ''Das Wesen der Träume'' ist eine Art Zusammenfassung der wichtigsten Gedanken Fromms zum Verständnis des Traumes und zur Kunst der Traumdeutung in Abgrenzung von den Traumtheorien Freuds und Jungs. Die letzten drei Absätze des Aufsatzes enthalten die wichtigsten Thesen Fromms zur Traumsprache als der universalen symbolischen Sprache der Menschheit (wie sie Fromm dann in dem Buch ''Märchen, Mythen, Träume'' noch weiter ausgeführt hat). Hier wird deutlich, welchen Stellenwert das Verstehen dieser vergessenen Sprache für ein humanistisches Menschenbild und Erziehungsideal hat.<br /><br /> Erich Fromm, Psychoanalytiker, Sozialpsychologe und Autor zahlreicher aufsehenerregender Werke, wurde 1900 in Frankfurt am Main geboren. Der promovierte Soziologe und praktizierende Psychoanalytiker widmete sich zeitlebens der Frage, was Menschen ähnlich denken, fühlen und handeln lässt. Er verband soziologisches und psychologisches Denken. Anfang der Dreißiger Jahre war er mit seinen Theorien zum autoritären Charakter der wichtigste Ideengeber der sogenannten ''Frankfurter Schule'' um Max Horkheimer. 1934 emigrierte Fromm in die USA. Dort hatte er verschiedene Professuren inne und wurde 1941 mit seinem Buch ''Die Furcht vor der Freiheit'' weltbekannt. Von 1950 bis 1973 lebte und lehrte er in Mexiko, von wo aus er nicht nur das Buch ''Die Kunst des Liebens'' schrieb, sondern auch das Buch ''Wege aus einer kranken Gesellschaft''. Immer stärker nahm der humanistische Denker Fromm auf die Politik der Vereinigten Staaten Einfluss und engagierte sich in der Friedensbewegung. Die letzten sieben Jahre seines Lebens verbrachte er in Locarno in der Schweiz. Dort entstand das Buch ''Haben oder Sein''. In ihm resümierte Fromm seine Erkenntnisse über die seelischen Grundlagen einer neuen Gesellschaft. Am 18. März 1980 ist Fromm in Locarno gestorben.

Description :  <b>A compendium from the full range of Erich Fromm’s writings</b><br /><br /> Fromm’s basic idea was to look at the individual as a social being and to look at society as an ensemble of many individuals who have not only common ideas and convictions based on a common practice of life but also a common psychic structure. With his concept of “social character” he created a new interdisciplinary thinking presented in this reader.<br /> &#xa0;<br /><i>The Erich Fromm Reader</i>&#xa0;exhibits the true genius of an original thinker in seeing the connections between overlapping knowledge from many different fields. Here interdisciplinarity is not only a lip service but the impact of Erich Fromm’s unique social psychological notion.<br /><br /> “Fromm crossed the boundaries of traditional disciplines to expound his view on the alienation of man in an increasingly technological world.” —<i>Newsweek</i><br /><br /> Erich Fromm (1900–1980) was a bestselling psychoanalyst and social philosopher whose views about alienation, love, and sanity in society—discussed in his books such as&#xa0;<i>Escape from Freedom</i>,<i>&#xa0;The Art of Loving</i>,<i>&#xa0;The Sane Society</i>, and&#xa0;<i>To Have or To Be?</i>—helped shape the landscape of psychology in the mid-twentieth century. Fromm was born in Frankfurt, Germany, to Jewish parents, and studied at the universities of Frankfurt, Heidelberg (where in 1922 he earned his doctorate in sociology), and Munich. In the 1930s, he was one of the most influential figures at the Frankfurt Institute of Social Research. In 1934, as the Nazis rose to power, he moved to the United States. He practiced psychoanalysis in both New York and Mexico City before moving to Switzerland in 1974, where he continued his work until his death.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> &#xa0;<br /><br /> &#xa0;
