With his creation of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud redefined how people relate to themselves and to the larger world. In Sigmund Freud’s Mission, Freud scholar and psychoanalyst Erich Fromm demonstrates how Freud’s life experiences shaped his creation and practice of psychoanalysis. Fromm also revises parts of Freud’s theories, especially Freud’s libido theory. In his thorough and comprehensive analysis, Fromm looks deep into the personality of Freud, and the followers who tried to dogmatize Freud’s theory rather than support the further stages of psychoanalysis. This book features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.
