A brilliant meditation on mental health in the modern world; alienation and mental health; ways to overcome 'the insane society'; a comprehensive analysis of prevailing concepts of mental health against Fromms views on overcoming destructive narcissism and social determinants of mental health; and a look at humankinds alleged passivity in relation to dreams, child development and psychology.
Erich Fromm (1900-1980) was a German social psychologist, psychoanalyst, humanistic philosopher, and democratic socialist. He was associated with what became known as the Frankfurt School of critical theory. His best known work, Escape from Freedom (1941), focuses on the human urge to seek a source of authority and control upon reaching a freedom that was thought to be an individual's true desire. Fromm's critique of the modern political order and capitalist system led him to seek insights from medieval feudalism. His many works (in English) include Psychoanalysis and Religion (1950); The Art of Loving (1956); and On Being Human (1997).
