The anatomy of human destructiveness by Erich Fromm( Book )

128 editions published between 1973 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 3,608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can we explain man's lust for cruelty? In a world in which violence seems to be increasing, social philosopher Erich Fromm has treated this haunting question with depth and scope in the most original and far-reaching work of his brilliant career. Fromm goes beyond the controversy between instinctivists like Lorenz, who argue that man's destructiveness has been inherited from his animal ancestors, and behaviorists like Skinner, who maintain that there are no innate human traits since everything is the result of social conditioning. Conceding that there is a kind of aggression which man shares with animals, Fromm shows that it is defensive in nature, designed to insure survival. On the other hand, malignant aggression, or destructiveness, in which man kills without biological or social purpose, is peculiarly human and not instinctive; it is one of the passions, like ambition or greed. Drawing on findings of neurophysiology, prehistory, anthropology, and animal psychology, Fromm presents a global and historical study of human destructiveness that enables readers to evaluate the data for themselves. Although deeply indebted to Freud, Fromm emphasizes social and cultural factors as well. Destructiveness is seen in terms of the dreams and associations of many patients, and of historical figures such as Stalin--an extreme example of sadism; Himmler--an example of the bureaucratic-sadistic character; and Hitler.--From publisher description

To Have Or to Be? is one of the seminal books of the second half of the 20th century. Nothing less than a manifesto for a new social and psychological revolution to save our threatened planet, this book is a summary of the penetrating thought of Eric Fromm. His thesis is that two modes of existence struggle for the spirit of humankind: the having mode, which concentrates on material possessions, power, and aggression, and is the basis of the universal evils of greed, envy, and violence; and the being mode, which is based on love, the pleasure of sharing, and in productive activity.

Renowned social psychologist Erich Fromm's classic study of Freud's most important-and controversial-ideasBestselling 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. Freud's work, however, was not without its flaws. Though he pioneered many of the practices

May man prevail? : an inquiry into the facts and fictions of foreign policy by Erich Fromm( Book )

26 editions published between 1961 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An engulfing study of the turmoil and uncertainty that pervaded the early 1960s, when the world was preoccupied with the threat of a nuclear holocaust The early 1960s were a time of existential unease across the world. The constant threat of a nuclear bomb'and of mutually assured destruction'led to a palpable sense that nuclear holocaust could occur any day. It was in this Cold War environment that social psychologist Erich Fromm wrote May Man Prevail' By analyzing the enemy stereotypes and mutual projections that were prevalent in the foreign policies of the Soviet Union and the United States, Fromm pointed to the anxieties on both sides and illustrates how paranoid thinking in the political realm can be extremely dangerous. With his excellent psychological analysis of the mindsets of the major players of the time, Fromm helped us overcome the Cold War's ideologies and fictions. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate

30 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erich Fromm & rsquo;s innovative analysis of the Old Testament as a striking early example of radical humanism The Old Testament is one of the most carefully studied books in the world & rsquo;s history. It is also one of the most misunderstood. This founding text of the world & rsquo;s three largest religions is also, Erich Fromm argues, an impressive radical humanist text. He sees the stories of mankind & rsquo;s transition from divided clans to united brotherhood as a tribute to the human power to overcome. Filled with hopeful symbolism, You Shall Be As Gods shows how the Old Testament and its tradition is an inspiring ode to human potential.
