    The Socio-Theoretical Relevance of Erich Fromm’s Psychoanalytic Conception of Narcissism.Takamichi Sakurai - 2021 - Theoria: A Journal of Social and Political Theory 68 (166):1-30.
    This article methodologically explores Erich Fromm’s theory of narcissism in socio-theoretical terms while referring to his theory of alienation. It thereby portrays the foundations of an analytical method of far-right politics in the context of capitalism and demonstrates that malignant narcissism touches off fascism without regard to authoritarianism. Essentially, the Freudian psychoanalytic concept of narcissism lies in Fromm’s social theory. However, it is possible to discern the theoretical essence of his social theory characteristically in his conception of alienation. By focusing (...)

Since fascism emerged in the first (...)

    Political theories of narcissism: towards self-reflection on knowledge and politics from the psychoanalytic perspectives of Erich Fromm and Fujita Shōzō.Takamichi Sakurai - 2018 - Zürich: Lit.
    Does the psychoanalytic concept of narcissism contribute to enhancing the disciplinary quality and features of political theory? This book tries to portray the foundations of democracy as both a universal value and a system of values embedded in specific cultural systems of meaning from its psychoanalytic perspective. This cross-disciplinary normative attempt makes possible the constructive dialogue between contemporary Western and Japanese culture by focusing on how the psychological foundations of democracy are treated within a common disciplinary framework in two different (...)
