Erich Fromm : the courage to be human by Rainer Funk( Book )

21 editions published between 1977 and 1987 in 3 languages and held by 1,085 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This lavishly illustrated biography covers Fromm's entire life, from his traditional Jewish upbringing to his association with the Frankfurt School. Fromm's work (1900-1980) is more compelling and popular in our century than ever before. It took a decisive turn as he encountered Freudian psychoanalysis--even as Fromm critiqued it throughout much of his lifetime. Funk covers with great sensitivity Fromm's seminal work with the so-called Frankfurt School of social critics as well as his break with it, his move to the U.S., his personal and professional relationship with Karen Horney, his associations with The New School in New York City and with D.T. Suzuki--living in Mexico "part time." More than 200 photographs and other memorabilia make this a compelling pictorial biography
Erich Fromm : his life and ideas : an illustrated biography by Rainer Funk( Book )

23 editions published between 1984 and 2004 in 6 languages and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The work of Erich Fromm, who was born in 1900, is more compelling and popular in our new century than ever before. This beautifully illustrated biography depicts Fromm amid the backdrop of his world." "From childhood, Fromm wanted to make Judaic studies his life's work. Yet from the beginning, he felt a great tension between "the old world of traditions" and the Germany in which he lived as a young Jew. With the completion of his degree, Fromm's life took a decisive turn from the centered Orthodox Judaism of his childhood to psychoanalysis. Though he never met Sigmund Freud, Fromm's discovery of Freudian theory had a profound effect, even as Fromm critiqued much of it throughout his lifetime." "Fromm's seminal work with Leo Lowenthal, Max Horkheimer, and others associated with the Institute for Social Research, the so-called Frankfurt School - as well as the controversies that culminated in Fromm's break in 1939 - follows. By the 1930s, Fromm had also established himself in the United States, as a Jewish immigrant seeking refuge from the Nazis. During this period, he maintained an important personal and professional relationship with Karen Horney. In 1940, Fromm was elected to the New York Academy of Science; during the 1940s, he taught at the New School for Social Research and Bennington College; through the 1950s, Fromm moved to Mexico "part time," where D.T. Suzuki became one of his most profound later influences. As age advanced, throughout the turbulent 1960s and 1970s, Fromm enjoyed his greatest popularity until a series of heart attacks culminated in his death, just five days short of his eightieth birthday, on March 18, 1980"--Jacket
The art of loving by Erich Fromm( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El arte de amar 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 amar? ¿Cómo desprendernos de nosotros mismos para experimentar este sentimiento? El amor no es solo una relación personal, es un rasgo de madurez que se manifiesta en diversas formas: amor erótico, amor fraternal, amor filial, amor a uno mismo... 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 música, pintura, carpintería o el arte de la medicina. O, por lo menos, no dedicar nuestra energía a buscar éxito y dinero, prestigio y poder, sino a cultivar el verdadero arte de amar

The art of listening by Erich Fromm( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Though generally thought of as a brilliant social commentator, Fromm was first a great psychoanalyst. These posthumous writings combine two aspects of Fromm's thinking, building on Freudian theory and also modifying it with a unique humanist view. For Fromm, the essence of psychological health involves communication between the irrational and rational parts of the personality. The art of therapy is the art of listening
The essential Fromm : life between having and being by Erich Fromm( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and German and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through his early ground-breaking books and later bestsellers such as To Have or to Be and The Art of Being, Erich Fromm built a reputation as a brilliant psychoanalyst and became one of the foremost cultural critics of our time. This selection of his essential writings, which includes many previously unpublished texts, will delight both afficionados and newcomers to his work. Why is it so difficult to break away from the kind of existence based on having - conspicuous consumption - and, instead, lead a life which is truly satisfying? Fromm argues that many unconscious factors play a role in the individual's attraction to superficial, false ways of living. To cultivate happiness and fulfilment, as well as an enlightened society, each of us must live more consciously, become more aware of what is really important. To put down roots yet remain free is what Fromm called the Art of Being - the secret of happiness. The texts featured in The Essential Fromm define the differences between mere having and healthy being: between destructiveness and creativity, between passivity and the joy of positive activity
The revision of psychoanalysis by Erich Fromm( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was Erich Fromm's conviction that psychoanalysis needs to retain Freud's essential insight into the unconscious while replacing his mechanistic-materialistic philosophy with a humanistic one. In this book, never before published in English, Fromm presents such a revision of psychoanalysis, one that is both humanistic and dialectical. The Revision of Psychoanalysis is Fromm's long-expected account of his own personal way of understanding and practicing psychoanalysis

Renowned social psychologist Erich Fromm outlines a guide to well-being in the modern age Though laptops, smartphones, and TVs have in many ways made life more convenient, they have also disconnected us from the real world. Days are spent going from screen to machine, machine to screen. In The Art of Being, renowned humanist philosopher and psychoanalyst Erich Fromm draws from sources as varied as Sigmund Freud, Buddha, and Karl Marx to find a new, centered path to self-knowledge and well-being. In order to truly live, Fromm argues, we must first understand our purpose, and the places where we lost it.

Erich Fromm & rsquo;s insightful work on the modern human condition, and how to break free of its bonds In the 1960s, renowned social psychologist Erich Fromm argued that people were becoming increasingly alienated.
