His second important work, Man for Himself: An Inquiry into the Psychology of Ethics, first published in 1947, continued and enriched the ideas of Escape from Freedom. Taken together, these books outlined Fromm's theory of human character, which was a natural outgrowth of Fromm's theory of human nature. In his book Man for Himself Fromm spoke of "orientation of character". He differentiates his theory of character from that of Freud by focusing on two ways an individual relates to the world.

In Man for Himself, renowned social philosopher Erich Fromm posits: With the gifts of self-consciousness and imagination, any individual can give his or her own unique answer. This answer is rooted in our human nature, and should correspond to mankind’s powers of reason and love. Therefore, Fromm reasons, living itself is an art. In his humanistic concept of man, Fromm describes various character orientations that are to be found in Western culture

Psychology of Ethics

At about the age of 23 I discovered for the first time that I had a mind. Previous to that, I had been more-or-less incapable of any sort of introspection. Smoking marijuana opened my unconscious mind and I felt like I was able to step outside of myself and see myself for the first time. I immediately started reading books other than adventure novels. One of the first authors I discovered was Eric Fromm. His thinking completely galvanized me. I thought that he had figured out all human problems, and all people had to do was pay attention. I knew essentially nothing about Freud, Jung, Marx, Nietzsche, and so on, and Fromm synthesized all of their thinking into a coherent system. Fromm championed the bogey-man of right-wing Christianity, namely secular humanism. The idea of which is that the foundations for value systems should be based on man’s autonomy and reason. In order to know what was good for man, one has to know the nature of man. Authoritarian ethics is an irrational system based on acquiring power over people. This strikes me as so self-evident that it’s incredible that it could arouse controversy. Fromm claims that one of the best tools for knowing human nature is psychoanalysis.

These days Freud’s ideas are commonly held to be erroneous, and some critics dismiss Fromm’s ideas as he relies upon ideas of Freud. This is nonsense. Freud was one of mankind’s greatest geniuses. While it is true that his motivations discoveries he made regarding human nature were physiologically clockwork, following the prejudices of his time, Fromm acknowledged this. Too completely dismiss Freud’s ideas on this basis would be like denouncing Kepler’s equations because he thought that planetary motion was caused by the “Holy Spirit,” or Newton’s theory of gravity because he explained it in terms of action at a distance.

Rereading Fromm forty some years later, I am astonished at the extent to which he and I think alike. No doubt, this is because I devoured his work at an impressionable time of my life. So I still think that his ideas should be taught in high school. One thing I’ve become convinced of over the years is that irrational devotion to dogma is most often the source of evil, whether the dogma is religious or political. Teaching young people to not enslave their minds to authoritarian dogma is simply sane.

Fromm's ideas are timeless. His psychological, philosophical and political insights are more valuable today as our society faces the problems of growing inequality. He shows that the superficial self-help industry and the corporate advertising complex see us as easy prey for the quick fixes they offer as solutions for the deep struggles we face as a society and as individuals.
This book demonstrates that we all have the ability to understand our own needs and society's needs on a deeper level. Simply having faith in our potential to develop our talents and combining our skills cooperatively with others will improve our society and our own mental health.

I last read this book a year ago, and it's teachings have stayed in my mind as have those in Alfred North Whitehead's Aims of Education. In my mind this is the value of a good book. In a review of this work Dr.Lee
D. Carlson complains that Fromm offers too little scientific evidence for his findings. My intent is not to belittle science, but to elevate humanism, the philosophy of Fromm.
If you like Erich Fromm you will enjoy this book; if you don't like him, don't waste your money or time; if you don't know Fromm, you owe it to yourself to try this book.
I have given it 5 stars. You might too, but you must read it first.

I really like the writing style and at the same time the substance of Mr. Fromm’s research. It is just writing but I do feel the direct reflection of his ideas in myself and other people.

One of the greatest works on psychology and sociology, by a serious and insightful thinker. I recommend all his fine works. Each one is a must have. This book is short, concise and easy to understand. Fromm was one of the best writers because he had the knack of making complex subjects simple and straightforward.
Fromm presents a non-theological view of the subject and is a dependable and accessible writer. Next stop - Durkheim's book on the subject.
