The Art of Loving has helped hundreds of thousands of men and women achieve rich, productive lives by developing their hidden capacities for love. An astonishing frank and candid book renowned psychoanalyst Erich Fromm, it explores the ways in which this extraordinary emotion can alter the course of one's life.
Most of us are unable to develop our ability to love on the only level that really counts-a love that is compounded of maturity, self-knowledge, and courage. Learning to love demands practice and concentration. Even more than any other art, it demands genuine insight and understanding. In this startling book, Fromm discusses love in all aspects: not only romantic love, so surrounded by false conceptions, but also love of parents for children, brotherly love, erotic.
"Erich Fromm is both a psychologist of penetration and a writer of ability. His book is one of dignity and candor, of practicality and precision."--"Chicago Tribune"Every line is packed with common sense, compassion, and realism."--"Fortune --このテキストは、絶版本またはこのタイトルには設定されていない版型に関連付けられています。商品の説明をすべて表示する
This dialogue implies that love is not something natural, but something demanding discipline and practice.
In that sense, Erich Fromm’s “The Art of Loving” is similar. In fact, to my knowledge, this is the only book that says love is an art that can be mastered by anyone and everyone by cultivating such virtues as discipline, patience, and practice.
For example, it is easy for a mother to love her child because it’s a kind of instinct, but it is not easy for her to keep detached from her child when it is better for her to do so for the benefit of the child’s development, and even when she knows it is better, because it requires discipline, patience, and practice. I learned from this book that the ability to be alone is the condition for the ability to love.
