A lecture given by Erich Fromm on May 28, 1957, at The New School for Social Research of New York is translated here in Italian for the first time. This lecture was the last in a series about the main concepts of Freud’s psychoanalysis (most of these lectures were not recorded, while this one was recorded and transcribed). Fromm discusses the following topics: Freud’s physiological concept of sexuality and the biological concept of sexuality suggested by Fromm; the role of mas-culinity and femininity; the Freudian concept of the libido; Fromm’s theory of human nature, in which he conceptualizes various needs as described in his 1955 book The Sane Society (the need for relatedness, the need for rootedness, the need for a sense of identity, the need for transcend-ence, the need for a frame of orientation and an object of devotion); impacts for the understanding of patients; Freud’s technique of free association; the relationship between the analyst and the pa-tient; the importance of dreams; the present situation in psychoanalysis and its future.
