Item description for On Being Human by Erich Fromm...
Any attempt to identify the thread that runs through the late Erich Fromm's writings will soon uncover an unequivocally humanistic world view. From the 1930s on, this was Fromm's guiding principle. It signified Fromm's break with the Frankfurt School: Marcuse, Adorno and Horkheimer. This posthumous volume includes writings from one of Fromm's most fertile periods the 1960s. These writings concentrate on humanistic science, socialism, religion, and psychoanalysis. They are from lectures, works written for specific occasions, and manuscripts intended as books. Of particular interest is an extended essay on two very different thinkers: Meister Eckhart and Karl Marx.

Being Controversially Human Mar 27, 2000
This is a collection of formerly unpublished works by Fromm. Please take my advice to read this only after you are familiar with Fromm. I made the mistake of reading it before I knew of Fromm's works. The essays contained serve to reinforce his studies and theories. Most who are reading this as their first Fromm book will find his essays insufficient. I was particularly at a loss regarding the Meister Eckhart and Karl Marx essays.
