Man for Himself - An Inquiry into the Psychology of Ethics
Fromm, Erich
Book Number: 60573
ISBN: 0805014039
Henry Holt - An Owl Book 1990 8vo. Soft cover. 254pp. Index. Very good. Are we primarily determined by nature or nurture? What are the best ways that people can live productively? 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. For the first time, Fromm analyzes the parallels between economic concepts of market value and how we value others and ourselves—the idea of personality as a commodity. He argues for a return to humanistic ethics, and discusses issues such as the question of conscience, of selfishness and self-love, and of pleasure and happiness.

The Sane Society
Fromm, Erich
Book Number: 60574
ISBN: 0805014020
Henry Holt - An Owl Book 1990 8vo. Soft cover. 370pp. Index. very good. A critique of contemporary capitalism. The Sane Society anaylses how individuals conform to contemporary capitalist and patriarchal societies, the book was published to wide acclaim and even wider disapproval. It was a scathing indictment of modern capitalism and as such proved unwelcome to many. Unwelcome because much of what Fromm had to say was true. Today, as we settle into the challenges of the 21st century, Fromm's writings are just as relevant as when they were first written in 1955.

Sex and Gender
Archer, John and Barbara Lloyd
Book Number: 43204
ISBN: 0521635330
Cambridge University Press August 12, 2002 8vo softcover 294pp very good. This second edition of John Archer and Barbara Lloydas Sex and Gender is extremely wide-ranging and tackles challenging theoretical issues, including the ultimate origins of sex differences in human behavior. In bringing social, developmental, and evolutionary theories to bear on many different types of female and male behaviors, Archer and Lloyd have produced an intellectually sophisticated text. Yet, the writing is engaging and accessible to undergraduates. Another plus is that the research covered in the book stems from a wide range of cultures. This is a truly outstanding book! Sex and Gender (2nd edt.) is a substantially revised edition of a classic text. Adopting a balanced approach to the often controversial study of sex differences, the authors introduce the reader to the fundamental questions relating to sex and gender in an accessible way. Drawing on the latest research, new developments are explored such as the rise of evolutionary psychology and the influence of Social Role Theory as well as new psychoanalytic and ethno-methodological approaches which have all contributed to a greater understanding of the complex nature of masculinity and femininity.

Unexpected Legacy of Divorce
Wallerstein, Judith Et Al
Book Number: 49204
ISBN: 073227043X
HarperCollins Publishers June 28, 2001 8vo softcover 347pp near fine. Twenty-five years ago, when the impact of divorce on children was not well understood, Wallerstein began what has now become the largest study on the subject, and this book, presents the psychologist's startling findings. By tracking approximately 100 children as they forge their lives as adults, she has found that contrary to the popular belief that kids would bounce back after the initial pain of their parents' split, children of divorce often continue to suffer well into adulthood. Their pain plays out in their relationships, their work lives and their confidence about parenting themselves. Wallerstein argues that although the situation is dire, there is hope to be found at the end of good counseling and healing.
