Alchemists of Human Nature: Psychological Utopianism in Gross, Jung, Reich and Fromm by Petteri Pietikainen
English | October 15, 2007 | ISBN: 1851969233 | 299 pages | PDF | 3 MB
This is the first book-length study of Modernist utopias of the mind. Pietikainen examines the psychodynamic writings of Otto Gross, C G Jung, Wilhelm Reich and Erich Fromm. After they broke from Freud and orthodox psychoanalysis, Pietikainen argues, utopianism became increasingly important to the fundamental ambitions of all four thinkers.
