Alfred Adler (1870-1937) was an Austrian medical doctor, psychotherapist, and founder of the Adlerian school of individual psychology. In collaboration with Sigmund Freud and a small group of Freud's colleagues, Adler was among the co-founders of the psychoanalytic movement and a core member of the Vienna Psychoanalytic Society. He was the first major figure to break away from psychoanalysis to form an independent school of psychotherapy and personality theory. In this late work, "Social Interest: A Challenge to Mankind", Adler turns to the subject of metaphysics. He argues his vision of society: "Social feeling means above all a struggle for a communal form that must be thought of as eternally applicable... when humanity has attained its goal of perfection... an ideal society amongst all mankind, the ultimate fulfillment of evolution." This social feeling for Adler is a community feeling whereby one feels he or she belongs with others and has also developed an ecological connection with nature (plants, animals, the crust of this earth) and the cosmos as a whole

The education of children by Alfred Adler( Book )

88 editions published between 1930 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 1,093 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"2011 Reprint of 1930 English edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Along with Freud and James, Alfred Adler was a pioneer in the field of individual psychiatry. The materials contained in this volume were written over sixty years ago but remain equally valid today. Though aware of some of the terms he coined, e.g., "inferiority complex," "compensation," and "overcompensation," most teachers and parents are completely unaware of Adler and his remarkable insights into one of the world's most crucial mandates. This book presents some of Adler's most powerful insights on numerous aspects relating to the education of children, including the development of personality; the relationship between the inferiority complex and striving for superiority; preventing the inferiority complex; obstacles to social development; the child's position in the family; the child at school; adolescence and sex education; and educating the parent" -- Publisher description

Guiding the child on the principles of individual psychology by Alfred Adler( )

46 editions published between 1930 and 2014 in English and Turkish and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under the leadership and inspiration of Dr. Alfred Adler, a group of physicians and educators have in the last few years organized twenty-eight child guidance clinics in Vienna, Berlin and Munich. Conducted according to the tenets of Individual Psychology, these clinics have revealed many new and stimulating problems that are as applicable to conditions in America and England as in the experimental countries. The procedure and results of the actual day-by-day work is given in this volume. The book is designed as an organized and connected account of the problems, accomplishments and failures encountered in the daily work, reported from actual experience by the experts in charge. Dr. Adler has edited the volume and assigned each subject to the specialist in that field, to the end that there may be no omission and no repetition. The result is a closely knit account of inestimable value to the welfare worker, the physician, and the forward-looking parent. The book does not sacrifice fact to popular appeal, but at the same time, it has been carefully prepared to meet the needs of the individual parent as well as the progressive group worker.

Study of organ inferiority and its psychical compensation; a contribution to clinical medicine by Alfred Adler( Book )

53 editions published between 1901 and 2009 in German and English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to add to clinical medicine a further principle of research. From the completeness and the import of these early results I am sure that I have come upon very fruitful territory. To me, moreover, it was an attractive task to see our benumbed and thwarted conceptions of disease completely dissolved; to be able to observe human pathology in its making
Psychologies of 1930( Book )

17 editions published between 1930 and 2005 in English and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In planning Psychologies of 1930 we have tried to profit from all the serious criticisms that came to Psychologies of 1925. The former category of "Purposive Psychology" is here presented under the rubric "Hormic Psychology" and is expounded by the leading exponent of both rubrics. The large group of students who have come from Titchener's laboratory are represented by four different points of view. It may be made selfevident whether or not it is appropriate to apply the term "Structuralism" to the doctrines of this group. The present-day theories of the Leipzig laboratory are added to the Berlin group under the more general title of "Configurational Psychologies," it being definitely understood that this classification is applied by the Editor only. The three leading Russian schools of psychology are here presented in comparable, theoretical form for the first time in the English language. The Factor School of Psychology and three Analytical Psychologies appear also as distinct additions to the program of Psychologies of 1925. A separate section on some non-sectarian fundamental problems has also been added"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)

35 editions published between 1930 and 2011 in English and Japanese and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The art of understanding human nature is the art of understanding the dynamic patterns of human conduct. Alfred Adler has given us the key to this understanding in his monumental contributions to modern psychology, but before the compilation of this volume of case histories the student of the methods of Individual Psychology has been compelled to search for his case material among the German publications of Adler and his pupils. Many of these published cases deal with conditions germane to continental environments, but puzzling to American readers. The principles and practice of Individual Psychology, however, are universally valid in their application, as this volume of purely American cases demonstrates. Readers of this book should realize that it is not a comprehensive treatise on psychotherapy, but rather an outline of childhood neuroses and a key to the art of reading case histories. Its chief value lies in acquainting all those who have to deal with children and adults with the dynamic patterns of human conduct. The technique of cure can no more be taught by such a volume than the art of etching can be taught by a treatise on the various physical and chemical processes that comprise the technique of preparing and printing a copper-plate. The book will have fulfilled its purpose if it succeeds in encouraging all who study its pages to view human beings not as static machines designated by labels, but as moving, living, purpose-fulfilling entities striving for significance and security in a perplexing world"--Introduction.
