The Art of Listening

Though thought of as a social commentator, Erich Fromm was first and foremost a psychoanalyst of our time. These writings combine two aspects of his thinking, showing how he builds on Freudian theory and also modifies it with his own humanist point of view.
Product Details


This posthumous work by the noted psychoanalyst and social critic is drawn from transcripts of talks and seminars Fromm gave between 1964 and 1980, the year he died. Even edited, the material meanders too casually, while facile generalizations and digressions abound. There are some gems in the rough: interesting comments on Freud, Reich, Groddek, et al., as well as a case presentation with dream analysis. And there is a useful bibliography. Still, compared with many other works of the last 20 years, this will not rank with Fromm's major contributions or prove particularly valuable to phychotherapists or their patients. Only for comprehensive collections.-E. James Lieberman, George Washington Univ. Sch. of Medicine, Washington, D.C.
