A brilliant meditation on mental health in the modern world; alienation and mental health; ways to overcome "the insane society"; a comprehensive analysis of prevailing concepts of mental health against Fromm's views on overcoming destructive narcissism and social determinants of mental health; and a look at humankind's alleged passivity in relation to dreams, child development, and psychology.

Insightful, robust, full spectrum. Typical of Fromm. He is an analyst "par excellance". I might add that he is prophetic as many of his suggestions have been realized today. In many cases that is unfortunate. Hard to believe his writings are so old, as they are most relevant. He speaks to us now.
