The Fully Sane Person And Insane Society

‘The sick individual finds himself at home with all other similarly sick individuals. The whole culture is geared to this kind of pathology. The result is that the average individual does not experience the separateness and isolation the fully schizophrenic person feels. He feels at ease among those who suffer from the same deformation. In fact, it is the fully sane person who feels isolated in the insane society and he may suffer so much from the incapacity to communicate that is is he who may become psychotic.’

Erich Fromm
German social psychologist, psychoanalyst, sociologist, humanistic philosopher, and democratic socialist
He was associated with the Frankfurt School of critical theory
