Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The renowned psychoanalyst Erich Fromm has helped millions of men and women achieve rich, productive lives by developing their hidden capacities for love. In this astonishly frank and candid book, he explores the ways in which this extraordinary emotion can alter the whole course of your life.

Most of us are unable to develop our capacities for love on the only level that really counts––a love that is compounded of maturity, self–knowledge, and courage. Learning to love, like other arts, demands practice and concentration. Even more than any other art it demands genuine insight and understanding. In this startling book, Fromm discusses love in all its aspects; not only romantic love, so surrounded by

conceptions, but also love of parents for children, brotherly love, erotic love, self–love, and love of God.

Book News Annotation:

Coming none too soon in a time which seems bereft of love of any kind, Fromm's classic originally published by Harper in 1956 is quietly optimistic, asserting that the only love that really matters is compounded of maturity, self-knowledge and courage. With a new introduction by Peter D. Kramer, this edition includes the full text describing love as an art, the theory of love in its many forms, including brotherly love, motherly love, exotic love, self-love and love of God, love and its disintegration in contemporary western society, and the practice of love. In an illustrated biographical afterword by Rainer Funk we find many of the sources for Fromm's thoughts on love, including his upbringing as an only child, his failed early marriages and his eventual success, and his perceptions of Freud, Marx, Weber and other great minds.
