Erich Fromm Institute in Tübingen (EFIT)

 

A LEGACY FOR PROSPERITY

For years Karl Schlecht has been pursuing possible ways of promoting the teachings of Erich Fromm. A significant result of this is now the opening of the Erich Fromm Institute in Tübingen (EFIT) on 30th January, 2015.

The Karl Schlecht Foundation  has acquired premises for the EFIT directly next to the World Ethics Institute in Tübingen.  The main goal of EFIT is to make Erich Fromm’s legacy accessible to a wide public and to set up the institute as a unique worldwide researh centre in memory and honour of Erich Fromm’s work. The proximity to the World Ethics Institute should serve the synergetic collaboration of both institutes.

 

Now publically accessible at EFIT:
Erich Fromm’s archive and reference library

To safeguard Fromm’s legacy for the future, the Karl Schlecht Foundation has been financing a project with over 50,000 € since 2012 – to digitise his writing and notes, which had until then been in the possession of Dr. Rainer Funk, his administrator. This work has now been assimilated into the EFIT.

The Erich Fromm Archive is a collection of not only the complete works and various works of Erich Fromm but it also includes different editions of diverse papers and their translations.The works of Erich Fromm have thereby been made extensively available and have been recorded bibliographically.

Available  now uniquely for scientific research is also the collection of preliminary work, original manuscripts and publisher’s manuscripts of individual books and numerous articles which Fromm wrote during the course of his life.

In addition to this, Erich Fromm’s reference library also exists with a total of over 3,500 volumes and almost 20,000 individual titles recorded bibliographically.  Also compiled bibliographically are approximately 1000 excerpts which Erich Fromm wrote regarding books in his reference library and also personal notes he wrote in the books themselves.

With the Fromm Research Fellowship, Jarno Hietalahti from Finland has been carrying out research since November 2014 on the theme “Erich Fromm and the phenomenon of humour”.
