This 7 page report discusses how psychoanalyst Erich Fromm (1900-1980) presented the philosophy and thinking of Karl Marx. Fromm was convinced that Marx was terribly misunderstood, especially by the communists of the former Soviet Union who attempted to co-opt his thinking. As Fromm explains Marx’s concept of socialism, the most important fact is that he interpreted Marx to mean that “socialism is not a society of regimented, automatized individuals, regardless of whether there is equality of income or not, and regardless of whether they are well fed and well clad. It is not a society in which the individual is subordinated to the state, to the machine, to the bureaucracy.” Bibliography lists 8 sources.
