0 Reviews
This beautifully designed volume contains 250 rare photographs of Fromm, his family, and associates. The literary executor of the Fromm estate has produced this all-new, lavishly illustrated biography to spearhead the spring 2000 international celebration of the centennial of Fromm's birth. The author of The Art of Loving, The Sane Society, To Have Or to Be?, and other classic works is as popular today as ever. His humanistic message endures as a rallying cry for a more merciful and responsive society. Fromm's entire life is here, from his traditional Jewish upbringing to the years associated with the Frankfurt School of philosophers through life with Trotsky in Mexico to Fromm's important work in America, from the 1950s to his death in 1980. Eschewing dry biographical facts, this fascinating volume will inspire older readers to return to the master's work as it will educate new readers of the seminal psychologist.
