I read this collection around the same time as reading You Shall Be As Gods, Fromm's constructive take on the Hebrew biblical tradition. I remember thinking, upon reading the headlining "The Dogma of Christ" essay, how reductive his psychological interpretation in it was compared to the expansivity of his liberal appropriation of rabbinic hermeneutics. Of course, what he was attacking was Catholic dogmatism and the authoritarianism of it, not giving a parallel take on the Christian biblical trad ...more

The book is profoundly Freudian in the concepts presented by Fromm. I didn’t believe he presented a compelling argument although it was interesting to read – quite possibly only because I am biased of his work! I disagree with his belief that the initial Christian population was filled with hope and hatred towards authority – regardless of the necessity for expanding his unconscious analysis involving the development of dogma. I found myself agreeing with his belief as to why the eschatological ...more

This is a collection of essays with ideas that I've mostly seen from him in other books like "Escape from Freedom," "The Art of Loving," and "The Forgotten Language." The titular essay was interesting, but something I had previously studied so not very compelling.

Probably the most interesting essays are "Sex and Character," which discusses the charact ...more

buneno. los capítulos más relevantes, a parte del prólogo, fueron "el sexo y el carácter" y "el carácter revolucionario".

The Dogma of Christ is a historical discussion with sporadic psychoanalytic comments. Looks like his views changed a lot after writing these essays as he is contradicting a lot with his other books like Fear of freedom & The Sane society.

Chapter on Sex & Character is the worst psychoanalytic reduction i have ever come across.

I still like this guy for his imagination & fresh ideas.

Erich Fromm was a German-born U.S. psychoanalyst and social philosopher who explored the interaction between psychology and society. His works include The Art of Loving; Love, Sexuality, and Matriarchy; and Man for Himself. He died in 1980.

Fromm's theory is a rather unique blend of Freud and Marx. Freud, of course, emphasized the unconscious, biological drives, repression, and so on. In other word
