Alfred Adler Studienausgabe -
Volume 3 of the Alfred Adler Study Edition contains 57 essays from 1913 through 1937, which represent the development of Adler’s psychotherapeutic theory. Its essential concepts are the community feeling and the structuring of the psyche by unconscious striving. Adler’s idea of man is an optimistic one because from his point of view every individual is able to overcome the shortcomings of human existence. Each human being is regarded in its relationship with others, with nature and cosmos. The nature of a person can be conceived only intuitively – beyond a symptomatology.
