Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Using a fittingly psychoanalytic approach, Fromm's literary executor Funk provides penetrating commentary on his subject, focusing on the various dimensions of Fromm's relationship with his parents, his search for alternate mother and father figures, and the crucial impact of early mentors. The numerous photos deftly express Funk's points. For example, while Funk does an excellent job of describing the relationship between Fromm and his mother, several well-chosen photos reveal more of the dreariness and emotional dissimilarity than any description ever could. As with most illustrated biographies, the scope of the text is fairly narrow, with a tendency to summarize Fromm's life rather than delve into its finer points. The reader will have to refer to more exhaustive biographies such as Daniel Burston's The Legacy of Erich Fromm (LJ 2/1/91) or Svante Lundgren's Fight Against Idols (Peter Lang, 1998).
