To Have Or To Be?
Bloomsbury Academic, 06/09/2005 - 182 páginas
To Have Or to Be? is one of the seminal books of the second half of the 20th century. Nothing less than a manifesto for a new social and psychological revolution to save our threatened planet, this book is a summary of the penetrating thought of Eric Fromm. His thesis is that two modes of existence struggle for the spirit of humankind: the having mode, which concentrates on material possessions, power, and aggression, and is the basis of the universal evils of greed, envy, and violence; and the being mode, which is based on love, the pleasure of sharing, and in productive activity. To Have Or to Be? is a brilliant program for socioeconomic change.

This book should be republished as "Slavoj Zizek for People Without Phds in Philosophy." It is the most salient book I have read about coping with life in a post-industrial society. Ler crítica na íntegra
Review: To Have or to Be? The Nature of the PsycheProcura do Utilizador - Syed Adams - Goodreads
9/10. Such an interesting commentary on capitalist influence in society. For example he highlights how things taken for granted like our language can orient us towards selfishness rather than altruism. Must read. Ler crítica na íntegra
