Fromm’s declare to be an suggest of cause is disingenuous, to assert the least. He speaks of cause and love as being “only assorted sorts of comprehending the area. ”12 as though this weren't an unequivocal facts of his mysticism, he is going directly to communicate, within the paintings of Loving, of the “paradoxical good judgment” of jap religions, which, he tells us approvingly, isn't weighted down by means of the Aristotelian legislation of contradiction and which teaches that “man can understand truth purely in contradictions. ”13 (Hegel and Marx, he asserts — appropriately — belong to this “paradoxical” epistemological line. ) His dialogue of what he skill by means of “productiveness” is scarcely extra pleasant. 12 guy for Himself, p. ninety seven, thirteen The paintings of Loving, p. seventy seven. within the paintings of Loving, written a few years after guy for Himself, he proclaims that cause and effective paintings, even though definitely very important, supply basically partial and, by way of themselves, very unsatisfactory recommendations: the “unity” they in achieving is “not interpersonal,” and the “desire for interpersonal fusion is the main, robust striving in guy. ”14 Fromm pulls an unexplained change at this aspect.
