Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 Freuds Civilization and its Discontents. Fromm examines mans 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.

Erich Fromm was a German-born U.S. psychoanalyst and social philosopher who explored the interaction between psychology and society. His works include The Art of Loving; Love, Sexuality, and Matriarchy; and Man for Himself. He died in 1980.

"One is fascinated page after page by the incisiveness of the analysis, the concreteness of the presentation, and the beauty of the style."Paul Tillich

"A courageous book with a high moral objective . . . An unflinching indictment of contemporary society."Guide to Psychiatric and Psychological Literature

the sane society is one of the best books in psychoanalysis, especially in alienation. through this book, Fromm wanted to emphasized that alienation happened in every way of life of human. He was agree with Marx in this problem.
