This paper deals with Fromm's conception of man, with special reference to the Frankfurt School and critical theory, psychoanalysis and historical materialism as some of the Fromm’s key theoretical postulates. Fromm's main interest is human being and all of his works were centered on this subject, but from different perspectives. In his considerations Fromm united various disciplines, including sociology, philosophy, psychology, psychoanalysis etc., which only taken together provide a complete picture of man. This paper laid out the key points of Fromm's anthropology: human nature, the human situation, existential dichotomies, socio-historical determination, individual mental health and the health of society, man's chance of freedom, personality traits, individual and social character, the dispute between the biological and social conditioning of human impulses. Fromm's works mainly rely on Marx and Freud's theory, but towards both he maintains a critical stance and creates his own, original combination of these ideas, which he calls analytical social psychology. Fromm sees the man as an individual, but also as a part of society, and therefore a large part of his analysis is dedicated to the description and critique of existing society, but also the anticipation of possible new and better society
