O humanismo normativo de Fromm
AbstractOur work -~ «Fromm's Normative Humanism» — which, as a matter of fact, is divided in six topics: 1) Sacred Contemporaneity; 2) Ideologic Logos; 3) One more «ism» to rhyme with Reformism; 4) Fromm's Marx; 5) The Frommian man; and 6) The Metaphisical Terrorism — has as its main aim the critical «break-up» of the theoretical conjectures which are the structure of Fromm's work (and, specially, his «The Sane Society))), whose analytical insufficiency, for us, is notorious, being determined somehere in the text as follows: «E. Fromm confines himself to repeat the humanistic myth of the super¬natural man, in which the opposition nature/culture assumes the shape of metho¬dological directive of all his discourse.)) However, even if our analysis has as its focal point Fromm's conceptua¬lization of the being of man in the contemporaneous society, it is not resctricted by this subject, because it generically fits in the whole problematic of humanism. Really, in the last resort, the text reveals not only a criticism to Fromm's theoretical posture, but also a criticism "Flumanism", whose definition to us is the metaphisical determination of man edified by the Ocidental thought. So, won'it be somewhat problematic the title of our dissertation? Is it really possible to achieve an humanism without a normative imposition? Owing to this, by the by, it would be stimulating to read the Brief iiber den "Humanismus", by Heidegger. Finally, it must be said — to eliminate possible misunderstandings — that being theoretically anti-humanistic isn't properly to be against man. This seem to be clear, but as to many people it isn't, we let here the warning.
