The anatomy of human destructiveness by Erich Fromm( Book )

242 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in 19 languages and held by 3,947 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
Man for himself, an inquiry into the psychology of ethics by Erich Fromm( Book )

268 editions published between 1947 and 2013 in 19 languages and held by 3,705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume, the author examines the confusion of modern women and men who, because they lack faith in any principle by which life ought to be guided, become the helpless prey of both internal and external forces. From a broad, interdisciplinary perspective, the author shows that psychology cannot divorce itself from the problems of philosophy and ethics, and that human nature cannot be understood without understanding the values and moral conflicts that confront us all. He shows that an ethical system can be based on human nature rather than on revelations or traditions. As Fromm asserts, "If man is to have confidence in values, he must know himself and the capacity of his nature for goodness and productiveness."

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
