Erich Fromm’s insightful work on the modern human condition, and how to break free of its bonds In the 1960s, renowned social psychologist Erich Fromm argued that people were becoming increasingly alienated. No longer were we dynamic, constantly creative beings. Instead, he observed, we were becoming fixated on things like television, while the specter of nuclear war remained a consistent worry. On Being Human gathers several ofFromm’s writings on the “New Humanism” he proposed. In addition, the book presents a most interesting chapter on “Having” and “Being” according to Master Eckhart and Karl Marx that originally was written to be included in To Have or To Be? This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

This book compiles various manuscripts from Erich Fromm throughout the 60's until his death in the late 70's. Fromm makes some of the most compelling argument for a radical change in our way of thinking and being. From a soul-less and commodifying capitalistic way of life, to a humanistically-driven philosophy that recognizes everyone's individuality and participation in social life. For a follow-up reading, I strongly recommend Paulo Freire's Pedagogy of Oppression which takes these ideas further and develops into a guide to revisit our praxis.
