From the author of The Art of Loving and Escape from Freedom: A stunning look at modern materialism and how to live a life of purpose and meaning.   Life in the modern age began when people no longer lived at the mercy of nature and instead took control of it. We planted crops so we didn't have to forage, and produced planes, trains, and cars for transport. With televisions and computers, we don't have to leave home to see the world. Somewhere in that process, the natural tendency of humankind went from one of being and of practicing our own human abilities and powers, to one of having by possessing objects and using tools that replace our own powers to think, feel, and act independently. Fromm argues that positive change-both social and economic-will come from being, loving, and sharing.   This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate
