Arno Gruen was born in Berlin in 1923. He emigrated with his parents to the USA in 1936. He studied psychology and attained a doctorate as a psychoanalyst under Theodor Reik in 1961.

Arno Gruen mirrors society. He believes that an authoritarian upbringing can have severe consequences. If parents fail to show their children counterbalancing tenderness, an unsatisfied need for tenderness remains. This need, however, cannot be admitted. Obedience towards authority promises redemption, violence is experienced as strength, compassion is experienced as a weakness.
