I found it in a fleamarket and thought it might be interesting but it has really made me think and I will be passing it on. Elisa Fromm does not see capitalism and a loving society coexisting. They have opposite goals. In a successful capitalistic society, the individual must …more Fromm does not see capitalism and a loving society coexisting.
In a successful capitalistic society, the individual must become a cog in the wheel and not look at his fellow human beings and other members of society as equal to him, except as it applies to the exchange of goods. All desires that are satisfied by capitalism are superficial desires, not deep character desires. Only the non conformist can be truly happy in a capitalistic society. If a person in capitalist society applies The Golden Rule to life, it is as a benefit of exchange of goods, for example “be fair in your exchange with others.
See all 9 questions about Die Kunst des Liebens…. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. If you are a very traditional conservative white middle-class cisgender person, who is familiar with the bible but still loves Freud: If you are any other category of human, this book is probably not for you.
The constant denial of non-binary genders, the labelling of love between gay people as a mistake and a failure, the endless sexism in describing the roles of men and women, I could go on and on I can see a little spark in the text every now and then, some hopeful words that can be seen as wise and guiding.
But if the wrapping of these messages is just one big pile of discrimination not very lovable. If you have this book on your shelves and want to make it useful somehow: The Art of Loving kicks off with some very valuable insights regarding love in modern Western culture.
Fromm points out that we have altogether stopped viewing love as an act of will, but instead now see it as something that just effortlessly happens once we stumble upon the right person. He also ruminates on why relationships now tend to resemble business arrangements, rather than reflecting the traditional, self-sacrificing notion of marriage.
When it comes to demonstrating the folly of such ” The Art of Loving kicks off with some very valuable insights regarding love in modern Western culture. When it comes to demonstrating the folly of such “forward thinking,” Fromm seems right on the money; however, the book ultimately bogs itself down in dull prose that often uses psychobabble to disguise common sense as deep psychoanalytic insight. It’s a book that is old-fashioned enough to frequently trot out the Bible to illustrate an effective point, but modern enough to regard such holy texts as being useful in a poetic sense only.
Fromm happily paves over the pseudo-intellectual nonsense of Freud, but I don’t particularly enjoy seeing him prop up Marx in Freud’s place. Like most famous psychologists, Fromm too eagerly tries to force complex ideas into tiny little boxes in order to make them seem a lot less messy than they really are. Not a bad book per se, but one with a lot less practical application than is indicated by its title.
I felt skeptical towards this book throughout the first third, perhaps even the first half and considered abandoning it. The s view of women and motherhood was irritating and misogynistic I know the book was published inI know I should have expected it, but given that it’s still so popular I found myself unprepared and the heterosexism annoyed me too. I stuck with it though and I’m glad.
The final chapter, The Practice of Love, covers issues such as narcissism, capitalism and faith I felt skeptical towards this book throughout the first third, perhaps even the first half and considered abandoning it.
The final chapter, The Practice of Love, covers issues such as narcissism, capitalism and faith in humanity and comments such as, “While to many power seems to be the most real of all things, the history of man has proved it to be the most unstable of human achievements,” and “Mussolini’s kind of courage is the courage of nihilism.
It is rooted in a destructive attitude toward life, in the willingness to throw away life because one is incapable of loving it,” seemed particularly pertinent today. Sep 16, Shelby M. This started out with some really interesting insights that I agreed with, but then gradually went downhill. It was just really dated as a whole, and needs to be updated Jul 21, Nadia.

It’s lkebens pages and It works as a self-help book without actually being labeled as one. There was so many psychological concepts that i didn’t really understand. Fromm insisted on one idea: Love is an artwe should learn the theory to practice it. Fromm focus on explaining different types of Love motherly lovefatherly love, brotherly love, erotic love I know that desire can be mistaken for love, the parents love is unconditional.

I think it was a waste of time. Maybe I’ll give Fromm another chance one day with another book and another subject. I’m happy with the way i love people around me let’s move on to another book.
The outdated ideas of this book on women, motherhood and parenthood in generalchildren and childhood, gender, sexual activity, and homosexuality makes the text very annoying and disturbing, and difficult to read in some parts. I think above all other criticism, this book shows how much the discourse on the mentioned issues have changed over the past decades and have made several ideas expressed by Fromm totally unacceptable. Among these, for instance, are the ideas that homosexuality is a de The outdated ideas of this book on women, motherhood and parenthood in generalchildren and childhood, gender, sexual activity, and homosexuality makes the text very annoying and disturbing, and difficult to read in some parts.
Die Kunst des Liebens by Erich Fromm (2 star ratings)
Among these, for instance, are the ideas that homosexuality is a deviation and those engaged in such relationship cannot recognise the true love, ericg a woman’s part as a lover is limited in her bcoming mothers; that motherhood and fatherhood, mother and fatherly love are distinctly, by nature two separat things; the overemphasis on the polarity of genders and sexes; that children are not independent individuals and understand far less than is today proven they actually do and too many gender stereotypes spread along the whole text.
Especially in the case of different types of love regarding mother and father, Fromme suggests the ericg of our patriarchal society that have shaped human men and women relationships over time, are the true nature of human psychic and the sexist, polarised, narrowly defined views of what IS, is not something that needs change.
This is the most distruing feature of, I believe, this book and about the dscipline of psychology – then and now. This was not at all what I was expecting. It might have helped my expectations, I suppose, had I known it was written inbut suffice it to say, it’s a dated book. Homosexuals are, according to Fromm, incapable of love.
His descriptions of make and female love are as stereotypically sexist as you might guess from my previous sentence. God and Freud play strong supporting roles in this book.
What caused me This was not at all what I was expecting. What caused me to dole out one more than a 1-star review is that he seems to urge for our society and economy to function with love as a core organizing principle–a wish I’ve had for decades, so liebenz was interesting to see it described in more detail–and his explanation of man-children who have never grown up and are unable to love he offers perfect snapshot depiction of a partner or two I’ve had in my life and, like anything that validates a preexisting point-of-view, I found that extremely gratifying.
But will you learn the “art of love” from reading this book? If you’re looking for romance tips, read poetry instead. A bit disappointed by this one. Maybe because my expectations were a little too high and maybe cuz the name of Erich Fromm is one of the biggest figures in the field of psychoanalysis. But I don’t kunwt myself as someone who learend a lot from this book and I don’t lievens one can learn a lot from this book.
Erihc way Fromm speaks about love and the art of love didn’t come new to me in any way. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Psychoanalysts are generally crackpots unless proven otherwise. Why does the psychoanalyst’s perspective always seem like it’s too warped and theoretical to be applied to the real world? To me, much of this book vacillated between being too obscure and too cliche. The outdated concepts of gender and sexuality, including obnoxiously heteronormative bits, kept me irritated and disconnected from his main themes which weren’t even convincingly argued on their own.
For every interesting section for example, the parallels drawn between capitalism and modern relat Why does the psychoanalyst’s perspective always seem like it’s too warped and theoretical to be applied to the real world? For every interesting section for example, the parallels drawn between capitalism and modern relationships there is an equally dubious section the nonsense about motherly vs. None of his ideas are particularly new anymore, and many modern authors, thinkers and psychologists have improved on all the basic tenets of this book.
I am surprised that it continues to be lazily labelled “timeless” by today’s reviewers.
Notes This peculiar attitude is based on several premises which either singly or combined tend to uphold it.
Most people see the problem of love primarily as that of being loved, rather than that of loving, of one’s capacity to love.
