Bestselling author Erich Fromm revisits Sigmund Freud’s work, ushering psychoanalysis into the modern age
In The Revision of Psychoanalysis, renowned psychoanalyst and social psychologist Erich Fromm applies his innovative, humanist approach to Freud’s often contradictory ideas. Fromm pays special attention to the fact that human beings’ main problem has been the way they are related to the outer world, to others, and to themselves. Human passions and their effects have to be explained differently than Freud did, and psychoanalysis must be revised to accommodate this—a fact Fromm explains in his typically brilliant way. The result is a comprehensive, updated look at psychoanalysis and humanistic thinking that is as relevant today as when it was first written.   This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.
