Famous quotes containing the words erich fromm and/or fromm:

    In the nineteenth century the problem was that God is dead; in the twentieth century the problem is that man is dead.
    Erich Fromm (1900–1980)

    The danger of the past was that men became slaves. The danger of the future is that men may become robots. True enough, robots do not rebel. But given man’s nature, robots cannot live and remain sane, they become “Golems,” they will destroy their world and themselves because they cannot stand any longer the boredom of a meaningless life.
    —Erich Fromm (1900–1980)
