An analysis of the evolution of western societies from the medieval times up to now, from a psychological and sociological persp, 28 Jun. 2013
What I liked: Erich Fromm makes a groundbreaking attempt to explain the neurotic behaviour of modern human, based on the feeling of anxiety and aloneness they experience, which stems from them not having developed the skills to cope with the "freedom" they have gained and struggled for through the centuries.
What I didn't like: Some thoughts are repeated too many times, maybe on purpose, for reasons of understanding (as is the case for scientific works).
