The fiftieth Anniversary Edition of the groundbreaking international bestseller that has shown millions of readers how to achieve rich, productive lives by developing their hidden capacities for love

Most people are unable to love on the only level that truly matters: love that is compounded of maturity, self-knowledge, and courage. As with every art, love demands practice and concentration, as well as genuine insight and understanding.

In his classic work, The Art of Loving, renowned psychoanalyst and social philosopher Erich Fromm explores love in all its aspects—not only romantic love, steeped in false conceptions and lofty expectations, but also brotherly love, erotic love, self-love, the love of God, and the love of parents for their children.

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 l...

My goodness, what is this dude smoking? Someone close to me made me aware that this book existed, and so out of curiosity, I decided to borrow the book from the library and read it. It took me 2 days, and really, I hated every bit of this book, for several reasons that I will delineate below. But...

انذار این کتاب برخلاف اسمِ زرد و طراحی جلد مزخرفِ انتشارات مرواید، به هیچ وجه کتابِ زردی نیست و برخلاف تصور اولیه، دستورالعملی برای عاشق شدن و نحوه¬ی عشق¬ورزی، نیست. پس برای کسی که دنبال چند دستورِ ساده و عملی جهت عشق¬ورزی (مخ¬زنی) می¬گردد، ناامیدکننده خواهد بود. روحِ کتاب تنها ده سال پس از پایان جن...

يُعرِّف إريك فروم الحب فى كتابه : "بأنه ليس علاقة بشخص معين بل هو موقف يحدد علاقة الشخص بالعالم ككل وليس تجاه موضوع واحد للحب." يقول إريك فروم إن العناصر الرئيسة في الحب هي أربعة: الرعاية: فالحب هو الاهتمام الفعال بنمو وحياة ذلك الذي نحبه. المسؤولية: أن تكون قادراً ومستعداً لأن تستجيب لحاجات الآخ...

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 somethin...

عشق،واژه ای که بیش از پیش با آن مواجه ایم واژه ای که به اشتباه برداشت شده و به کار میرود: ★از نظر نویسنده،انسان به علت آگاهی از خود به عنوان موجودی مستقل که هیچ گونه اراده ای در تولد و مرگ خویش ندارد و هراس از مرگ خود و اطرافیانش دچار اضطراب و نگرانی ست.سرچشمه تمامی اضطراب ها، جدایی و رهایی ست.بنا...

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 ess...

One of my favorite books. I've read it three times now, and i'll probably read it several more times 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 a more loving person, but he does recognize...

La típica pregunta ¿Qué es el amor? Erich Fromm lo explica en este libro, pero claro, es muy difícil que una sola persona sea dueña de la verdad a un tipo de respuesta como en este tema. Sus hipótesis y también afirmaciones son interesantes. Varios tipos de amor y sentimiento puro, algo que en est...
