About this book

This book, shortlisted for the British Sociological Association's Philip Abrams Memorial Prize (2015), argues that Fromm is a vital and largely overlooked contribution to twentieth-century intellectual history, and one who offers a refreshingly reconfigured form of humanism that is capable of reintegrating explicitly humanist analytical categories and schemas back into social theoretical (and scientific) considerations.

Reviews

“a breath of fresh air…the most vigorous, rigorous, lively, insightful analysis of Fromm’s work I’ve encountered in many, many years” (Daniel Burston, Associate Professor, Duquesne University, Pittsburgh)

“a remarkable theoretical exploration…[t]he research here is meticulous” (Lawrence J. Friedman, Professor Emeritus of History, Harvard University)

“an outstanding interpretation of Fromm’s social theory” (Lawrence Wilde, Professor Emeritus of Political Theory, Nottingham Trent University)

“wide-ranging and highly compelling and will likely reinvigorate interest in what Fromm has to say as a social theorist.” (Roger Frie, Professor of Educational Psychology and Human Development, Simon Fraser University)

“[taking] the debate about Fromm to a new level” (Neil McLaughlin, Professor of Sociology, McMaster University)
