Interestingly, his work on extended self (Belk 1988), was, and still is, considered by many as radical, unscientific, and not coterminous with the dominant conception of marketing (Cohen 1989), despite the fact that it is based largely on the work of Erich Fromm (Fromm 1976) an influential and respected scholar of psychology and Csikszentmihalyi and Rochberg-Halton (1981) renowned scholars of sociological phenomena.
