Erich Fromm Shaper of the Human Condition

by Dr. Annette Thomson

Part of the Mind Shapers Series

Erich Fromm Shaper of the Human Condition Synopsis

The twentieth century was defined by far-reaching social changes, and this fresh insight into the life and works of Erich Fromm offers a compelling overview of his observations. Fromm's views on personal relationships, therapy, and his critique of society were closely tied to his astute analysis of the changes he witnessed and made him into a highly influential social and political commentator. In this absorbing introduction, Thomson considers how Fromm's early experiences influenced his enquiry into the human condition and examines what relevance his ideas still hold for students and readers today.

Erich Fromm Shaper of the Human Condition Press Reviews

Thomson offers an original and thoughtful re-examination of Erich Fromm's ideas, placing them in their intellectual and historical context and highlighting their relevance for our times. This book is scholarly, but written with refreshing clarity. I recommend it highly. - David Ingleby, Professor of Intercultural Psychology at Utrecht University
