Escape from Freedom

Erich Fromm (1900 – 1980)

1994 Henry Holt. New York
Trade Paperback in FINE condition. Decorated wraps protected in a clear plastic envelope. 301pp. Fromm explores humanity's shifting relationship with freedom, with particular regard to the personal consequences of its absence. His special emphasis is the psychosocial conditions that facilitated the rise of Nazism. He notes the logical extension of authoritarianism to sadism and explores the pathology of Hitler to illustrate the point identifying him as a “necrophile” a lover of death. His followers exhibit the pattern of addicts. Fromm famously coins the phrase “authority addicts” to describe them.
Bracing and essential reading given the current political climate in the U.S.
