Download Analytische Sozialpsychologie (German Edition) by Erich Fromm,Rainer Funk PDF

By Erich Fromm,Rainer Funk

Um seinen sozial-psychoanalytischen Ansatz zu fundieren, entwickelte Erich Fromm das Konzept des „sozial-typischen Charakters“, das er später unter dem Begriff des „Gesellschafts-Charakters“ der Öffentlichkeit vorstellte. Die in diesem Band versammelten Beiträge zur Analytischen Sozialpsychologie zeigen die Fruchtbarkeit dieses Konzepts in unterschiedlichen Anwendungsbereichen. So enthält der Band Fromms 1936 formulierte Theorie des autoritären Charakters sowie erhellende Überlegungen zu der Frage, wie sich Kulturentwicklung sozialpsychologisch verstehen lässt. Insbesondere aber zeigen die Beiträge, wie sich das Konzept des Gesellschafts-Charakters für die empirische Sozialforschung fruchtbar machen lässt.
