The Sane Society, Paperback / softback Book

The Sane Society Paperback / softback

Part of the Routledge Classics series


Following the publication of the seminal Fear of Freedom, Erich Fromm applied his unique vision to a critique of contemporary capitalism in The Sane Society.

Where the former dealt with man's historic inability to come to terms with his sense of isolation, and the dangers to which this can lead, The Sane Society took his theories one step further.

In doing so it established Fromm as one of the most controversial political thinkers of his generation.

Anaylsing how individuals conform to contemporary capitalist and patriarchal societies, the book was published to wide acclaim and even wider disapproval.

It was a scathing indictment of modern capitalism and as such proved unwelcome to many.

Unwelcome because much of what Fromm had to say was true.

Today, as we settle into the challenges of the 21st century, Fromm's writings are just as relevant as when they were first written.

Read it and decide for yourself - are you living in a sane society?
