In his classic work, The Art of Loving, renowned psychoanalyst and social philosopher Erich Fromm explores love in all its aspects—not only romantic love, steeped in false conceptions and lofty expectations, but also brotherly love, erotic love, self-love, the love of God, and the love of parents for their children.

Review«Erich Fromm is both a psychologist of penetration and a writer of ability. His book is one of dignity and candor, of practicality and precision.»—"Chicago Tribune"Every line is packed with common sense, compassion, and realism."—"Fortune

    Even Fromm's ideas are very similar with mine ones this book didn't left me any sense of completeness of these ideas. I would prefer to read any literature of gestalt therapy and some stories of patients and it works for me better than Fromm's reflections because they are full of pain, emotions, feelings and pure examples.

Quotes

    Dariahas quoted6 years ago
    just as it is important to avoid trivial conversation, it is important to avoid bad company. By bad company I do not refer only to people who are vicious and destructive; one should avoid their company because their orbit is poisonous and depressing. I mean also the company of zombies, of people whose soul is dead, although their body is alive; of people whose thoughts and conversation are trivial; who chatter instead of talk, and who assert cliche opinions instead of thinking.
    Артемhas quoted5 years ago
    The awareness of human separation, without reunion by love—is the source of shame. It is at the same time the source of guilt and anxiety.
    Dariahas quoted6 years ago
    To love somebody is not just a strong feeling—it is a decision, it is a judgment, it is a promise.
