The Fear Of Freedom

£7.99

Product description

Do modern men really want freedom or are they afraid of it? Is the fear of freedom the root of the twentieth-century success of one or another kind of totalitarianism? In this brilliant book Dr Fromm applies the psycho- analytical method to that illness of our time that expresses itself in abject submission to authority. For the rise of democracy, while setting men free, also created a society where a man feel isolated from his fellows, where relationships are impersonal, where insecurity replaces a sense of isolation that drives men to devotion and submission to an all powerful organisation or state.

Erich Fromm studied sociology and psychology at the Universities of Heidelberg, Frankfurt and Munich, and was trained in Psychoanalysis at the Psychoanalytical Institute in Berlin. Since 1926 he has devoted himself to consultant psychology and theoretical investigation. He has been Terry Lecture at Yale University and has lectured at Columbia, Bennington, the William Alanson White Institute of Psychiatry, and the National University of Mexico.

1960 edition.
