The significance of Erich Fromm's scientific thinking for the present

With the expansion of the IPU campus to the Alt-Moabit 91a building (2nd floor in the building complex parallel to Stromstraße), the Erich Fromm Study Center has been given its own space for teaching and research.

On this occasion, the Erich Fromm Study Center invites to a public evening event on June 12, 2024 at 7:00 pm, which will focus on the significance of Erich Fromm's scientific thinking for the present day. Fromm's view of man and his understanding of science are important impulses for the highly specialized scientific community of the present day and at the same time underline and complement the objectives of the International Psychoanalytic University. The event begins in Lecture Hall 4 in Building 91b.
