Mehr über den Autor

Aufgewachsen ist Erich Fromm (1900-1980) als Einzelkind in einer orthodox-jüdischen Familie. Er selbst bezeichnete sich gern als vormodernen Menschen, da er zunächst nur den Talmud und die Bibel studierte, darüber hinaus zehrte er von den Geschichten, die ihm über seine Vorfahren erzählt wurden. Ursprünglich wollte Erich Fromm Rabbiner werden, 1922 promovierte er jedoch zum Doktor der Philosophie. Nach seiner Begegnung mit der Psychoanalyse wandte er sich schließlich ganz vom orthodoxen Judentum ab. Er beschäftigte sich mit Karl Marx und arbeitete in Frankfurt mit Max Horkheimer, Theodor W. Adorno und Herbert Marcuse zusammen. 1934 emigrierte er in die USA. Zu seinen bekanntesten Werken gehören "Die Kunst des Liebens" und "Haben oder Sein".


Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

ERICH FROMM (1900-1980) was an outstanding social scientist and author of bestsellers. He was also a practising psychoanalyst who applied his experience to the interpretation of social phenomena and reformulated Freud's basic insights into the unconcious of the individual and of society. Fromm's popular success rests principally on two later works, The Art of Loving and To Have or to Be, in which he urged readers to abandon the lure of materialism for meaningful love.

This book is an expansion of his book entitled "To Have or to Be". One should not read one without the other. Highly recommend both,as an insight into the art of trying to function in this life as a whole, real person in this consumer driven world.

Good book if you take it for what it is and is not. 13. Januar 2008
Von B. Legrand - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
"Ask does the desire for x or y enrich your life?" That is about as close to a one line summary of the book that I can give. The main focus though is to set up having and being as two separate and opposed motivations for human life. Although it should come as no surprise as this was primarily a chapter from To Have or To Be that was omitted for reasons he discusses at the beginning.

It needs to be said first off that this is NOT a self help book. Fromm offers no answers on what one should do to enrich their lives, but rather with great care diagnoses how we think. His task is merely to illuminate us to the disease, not prescribe relief. So this is for the individual looking for different questions, not direction. Although he would certainly advocate a life tuned towards being and not having, what one must do to attain this is never addressed.

Fromm draws heavily on his varied background in psychology, sociology, and philosophy to make his case. His skill as a writer and researcher is finding ways for the ideas of these disciplines to fit together; with each offering a little piece to the overall puzzle. From Buddhism Fromm borrows ideas of suffering, from Marx a critique of capitalism, from Freud pathologies of the mind. From each of these viewpoints he approaches the same central notion of having vs. being. With each approach merely a different flavor of the same issue.

Ultimately is there anything here which cannot be found elsewhere? No. But for the individual who loves to question and will never read Marx's 1844 Manuscripts, Buddhist writings, or Freudian literature; this is a great (although selected) taste of their ideas without getting caught up on the baggage that usually comes with reading each individually.

In search of your 'self' 23. Juni 2001
Von George Stratev - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Erich Fromm has spent many years studying the corners of our human psyche. We go to school to learn biology, chemistry, physics, economics but we do not take any courses on how to live.
Mr. Fromm has made an intense effort to help us realize that we are who we want to be. There is a genetic structure that leads everyone of us in their own direction. However, nature is only one of the forces behind our development. As we become aware of who we are - our fears, strengths and weaknesses, we begin to understand how little we know about ourselves.
Looking inside is a wonderful way to begin seeing the world around us. Erich Fromm is allowing us to become more comfortable with who we are, where we are, and where we want to go!
Enjoy the book and the River of Life!

A true masterpiece - a magnificent achievement! 6. April 2011
Von Jonathan Bluestein - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a book you get to read once in a lifetime. Certainly one of the 3 best books I've ever read. Unfortunately, it is not for everyone to just read off the shelf without prior knowledge. I have read this book after having read & researched a lot about (and sometimes experienced) the fields of (or persons) Psychology, Psychoanalysis, Buddhism, Zen Buddhism, Daoism, Confuciounism, martial arts, Philosophy, Nietzsche, Capitalism, Social Democracy, Advertising, ADD/ADHD, Marxism, Freud and quite a few others. Only a person who has some basic knowledge of all these subjects, and preferably lots of knowledge about them, would be able to appreciate Fromm's greatness. It is because Fromm takes ideas and concepts shared by all these subjects, and many more, to produce an amazingly coherent outlook on our reality and society. I have never encountered anyone else who could seemingly merge so many topics, and discuss them with plain brilliance, as they were all just one thing. It is not just a great book in general - to someone who is into Buddhism or Daoism, this could be the best book he or she had ever read on this subjects - simply because of Fromm capacity to explain subjects like these, sometimes even without naming them, in a way a westerner could easily and intuitively grasp quickly.In this sense, and unlike what some reviewer has mentioned, it is a "self-help" book - it's just that the "help" it's going to give you is highly dependent on what is your starting point, knowledge-wise.

Beyond the main subject of the book, which is "Being" (or "mindfulness") and how to "get it", I think this book has achieved something much bigger - a grand theory of the nature of our society and human civilization. No less. Read this if you value your intelligence.

Fantastic book with superior information. A must read. 14. Juni 2009
Von Kenneth J. Nersten - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I have given this book to all my closest friends. I wish everyone will receive what I received which was a different perspective on how to live and how to think. This is an exercise in breathing, reading and concentrating. Each time I read through a chapter I learn a little more about the author, about life and about myself.
