Abstract:

"This is the first full-length analysis of the social and political thought of Erich Fromm, the best-selling social psychologist who was a hugely influential figure on the Left in the 1960s and 1970s. Fromm is the only modern communitarian theorist to base his work on a strong normative conception of the human essence. His radical humanism offers an ethical foundation for the critique of existing society and the development of credible alternatives. Wilde focuses on his radical humanist approach to gender relations, the experience of work, consumerism, democracy, and globalization, and draws comparisons with contemporary social theorists such as Luce Irigaray, Andre Gorz, Zygmunt Bauman and Roberto Unger. The result is a powerful argument for the relevance of a Frommian radical humanist approach to building human solidarity on explicitly ethical grounds."--Jacket.
