Some psychoanalysts have been labeled culturalist, or belonging to the cultural school,[1] because of the prominence they gave on culture for the genesis of behavior.[2] The most prominent culturalist psychoanalyst was maybe Erich Fromm,[1] and after him Karen Horney and Harry Stack Sullivan.[2]

They were famously in conflict with orthodox psychoanalysts.[3] Despite their differences with orthodox psychoanalysts, they had a "stubborn maintenance of a familialist perspective," still speaking "the same language of a familialized social realm".[3]
