Love, Sexuality, and Matriarchy: About Gender
One of the world's most widely-read psychoanalysts, Erich Fromm was a groundbreaking thinker on gender and sex, issues which have come to have a profound impact on psychology in recent years. He believed that a state of war has existed between the sexes for some six thousand years - a "guerrilla war" which followed the triumph of men over women and reorganized society on the basis of male domination, turning women into the property of men. As long as we fail to acknowledge this state of war dating back to the dawn of history, Fromm said, we will never understand the psychology of men and women. In Love, Sexuality, and Matriarchy: About Gender his most significant contributions about the problematic relations between men and women, some never before available in English, are brought together for the first time. They reveal Fromm as a pioneer of many of today's most challenging ideas about gender.
