Better than Carl Rogers ...
on 1 October 2014
Classic inspiring book indeed - very engaging,very in-depth study of the various type of LOVE ('Brotherly Love; Motherly Love; Erotic Love; Self Love; Love of God).
My favourite chapter is : Love and its Disintegration in Contemporary Western Society - we are all aware of it but Fromm writes with such clarity and eloquence.
Love is 'teamwork' (care, responsibility, respect etc.) and an ART -we need to develop and practice in order to find true contentment.
I am under the spell of Erich Fromm and just purchased his book on : The Art of Being. His philosophy is more 'down -to- earth' compared to Carl Rogers (- but this is a personal opinion and I know I am a minority by making statement like this ...)
