Erich Fromm papers 1929-1949 1932-1949

Erich Fromm (1900-1980) was a psychoanalyst, author, educator, and social philosopher. He was born in Frankfurt, Germany and emigrated to the United States in 1934. In New York Fromm was associated (until 1939) with the International Institute for Social Research. Fromm authored numerous books including Escape from Freedom which won him acclaim as an author of great brilliance and originality. Papers reflect Fromm's career as author, psychoanalyst, scholar, educator, and social philosopher and document his academic associations and activities, his writings and research at the International Institute for Social Research, and to a lesser extent at Sarah Lawrence College; his theoretical contributions to psychology, sociology, social psychology, and psychoanalysis; and his relationship with notable American scholars who were influenced by his work. His earlier career in Europe is touched upon by a few papers relating to his university lectureships in Germany and to his sojourn in Switzerland in 1932. Papers also reflect to some extent the plight of European Jews several of whom sought Fromm's aid in emigrating from France, Germany and Poland just before the outbreak of World War II.
