Wilhelm Reich 1946 144p 5 x 8
Written towards the time Reich was beginning to denounce psycho-analysis, Listen, Little Man! is the physician’s quiet, scathing talk to each one of us, the average human being, the Little Man. Written in 1946 after surviving World War II and in answer to the gossip and defamation that plagued his career, it tells how Reich watched, at first naively, then with amazement, and finally with horror, at what the Little Man does to himself; how he suffers and rebels; how he esteems his enemies and murders his friends; how, wherever he gains power as a ‘representative of the people,’ he misuses this power and makes it crueler than the power it has supplanted. With illustrations to drive Reich’s points home.
