Lawrence Friedman - The Lives of Erich Fromm: Love’s Prophet (Co-sponsored by Amnesty International)

All while championing love and eschewing sadomasochistic appeal of dictatorship, Erich Fromm was one of the most important intellectuals of the twentieth century. Lawrence Friedman’s new biography of Fromm reveals fascinating insight into his life and achievements, from his role in founding Amnesty International, to deeper understanding of his contributions to thought, especially his revolutionary concept of “social character.”
