Product Description

In this classic work a noted phychoanalyst assesses the persistent tension between traditional religion and the underlying philosophy of psychoanalysis, which many believe regards the satisfaction of instinctive and material wishes as the sole aim of life. Fromm argues that psychoanalysis is neither the enemy of religion nor its ally but rather is concerned with the human reality behind theological doctrines and with the realization of the human values underlying all great religious reachings.

Publisher's Description

A noted psychoanalyst assesses the modern issue between traditional religion and a philosophy that takes as the sole aim in life the satisfaction of instinctive and material values.  

“A daring book to have cast into the midst of the world’s excitements, for it will itself breed new excitements…it is not a book to be missed by those interested in man’s spiritual growth.”—New York Times
