Social Interest: Adler's Key to the Meaning of Life
Formulated in childhood, social interest refers to how individuals view themselves in relation to the external world. According to Alfred Adler, one of the founding fathers of modern psychoanalysis, an individual's level of social interest is key to his or her success in solving the problems of life. This revised edition of Adler theories explores this central feature of his philosophy.
