Book - 1955
Rate this:
"The Sane Society "is a continuation and extension of the brilliant psychiatric concepts Erich Fromm first formulated in "Escape from Freedom"; it is also, in many ways, an answer to Freud's "Civilization and its Discontents," Fromm examines man's escape into overconformity and the danger of robotism in contemporary industrial society: modern humanity has, he maintains, been alienated from the world of their own creation. Here Fromm offers a complete and systematic exploration of his " humanistic psychoanalysis." In so doing, he counters the profound pessimism for our future that Freud expressed and sets forth the goals of a society in which the emphasis is on each person and on the social measures designed to further function as a responsible individual.
