|About the Book|
Ive always admired Erich Fromm who had early been one of those who introduced me to Marx and Marxism in a manner which circumvented my Cold War upbringing. You Shall Be As Gods: A Radical Reinterpretation of the Old Testament and its Tradition serves similarly as a book which offers a constructively engaging new approach to Judaism. Fromm was apparently rabbinically trained. He certainly knew his stuff. I was quite impressed, as Id never been by Freud, by his mastery of the materials and positive appropriation of them.
