"The scientific underpinnings of Beyond Freud thoughtfully explore the social unconsciousness of the individual, as well as the unconscious driving forces of social entities. [The American Mental Health Foundation's Fromm titles] are timely, directly relevant to modern psychological and social issues, and bring absolutely invaluable humanist messages to temper psychology's scientific and healing discipline. Highly recommended, especially for college library collections." —Midwest Book Review An intensive understanding of psychoanalytic theory, relating Freudian insights and practices to the needs of society; dealing with the unconscious in psychotherapeutic practice; and considering the relevance of Freud’s discoveries for therapy today.

Erich Fromm (1900-1980) was a German social psychologist, psychoanalyst, humanistic philosopher, and democratic socialist. He was associated with what became known as the Frankfurt School of critical theory. His best known work, Escape from Freedom (1941), focuses on the human urge to seek a source of authority and control upon reaching a freedom that was thought to be an individual’s true desire. Fromm’s critique of the modern political order and capitalist system led him to seek insights from medieval feudalism. His many works (in English) include Psychoanalysis and Religion (1950); The Art of Lovingz (1956); and On Being Human (1997).
