    I went through this book again partly because it has so much to say, and partly because I wanted to re read Erich Fromm s instructions on how to meditate I like the way he puts it, on pages 101 102 If I am attached to another person because I cannot stand on my own feet, he or she may be a lifesaver, but the relationship is not one of love Paradoxically, the ability to be alone is the condition for the ability to love Anyone who tries to be alone with himself will discover how difficult I went through this book again partly because it has so much to say, and partly because I wanted to re read ...

    If my mate George hadn t recommended this book there is no chance at all that I would have read it I ve a strange relationship with LOVE in that I think it is grossly overrated by our society You could get away with thinking that if you were not in love in our society then there is something terribly wrong with you Never mind that the notion of being constantly in love in a world where this is all too frequently confused with being infatuated would be a nightmare not worth living.As If my mate George hadn t recommended this book there is no chance at all that I would have read it I ve a strange relationship with LOVE in that I think it is...

    This book confirms the idea that reading is a basic tool in the living of a good life, a better one indeed.Reading the Art of love awoke inside me some long dormant craving to approach the subject matter of love in a Tangible and Lucid way as Fromm did.In this book, Fromm asserts that love is essential to human flourishing and survival love is the answer to the problem of human existence he discusses frankly and candidly his theory of love in all its aspects not only romantic love, so steeped This book confirms the idea that reading is a basic tool in the living of a good life, a better one indeed.Reading the Art of love awoke inside me some long dormant craving to approach the subject matter of love in a Tangible and Lucid way as Fromm did.In this book, Fromm asserts that love is essential to human flourishing and surv...

    One of my favorite books I ve read it three times now, and i ll probably read it severaltimes in the future I really appreciate what a down to earth way of dealing with his subject matter that Fromm has He recognizes that no book can make you aloving person, but he does recognize that by calling our attention to the myriad ways that we misunderstand, and deceive ourselves about love, we can begin to approach a better understanding of what it might take to become better lovers One of my favorite ...

    Gave up at 1 3 because it simply became unbearable.If you are a very traditional conservative white middle class cisgender person, who is familiar with the bible but still loves Freud you have found your guide If you are any other category of human, this book is probably not for you.The constant denial of non binary genders, the labelling of love between gay people as a mistake and a failure, the endless sexism in describing the roles of men and women, I could go on and onI can see a little Gave up at 1 3 because it simply became unbearable.I...

    I underestimated the power of this rather unsophisticated looking book I have no idea who Fromm is but I imagine since he s a German Jew and lived through both world wars that he s a pretty insightful scholar He writes so eloquently about what love is and what is it not that I felt enlightened with every sentence Actually, I was imagining myself as bell hooks reading it for the first time in preparation to write All About Love So many of her premises are grounded in Fromm s theories and I I underestimated ...

    More than just an average self help book on spoiler you must love yourself and develop the capacity to love before you can love others , Fromm takes a socio political historical psychoanalytic approach to the topic of Love There are times when it does get a bit theoretical which is a PLUS for me because I am a nerd , but the book is very much accessible A friend recently commented that ifpeople read this book, there would be a lothappy, functional relationships True dat.This More than just an average self help book on spoiler you must love yourself and develop the capacity to love before you can love others , Fromm takes a socio political historical psychoanalytic approach to the topic of Love There are times when it does get a bit theoretical which is a PLUS for me because I am a nerd , but the book is very much accessible A friend recently commented that ifpeople read this book, there would be a lothappy, functional relati...
