Alexander  Kluy - Alfred Adler


The great biography of the founder of individual psychology

Alfred Adler, one of the forefathers of modern psychology alongside Sigmund Freud and C. G. Jung, is the founder of individual psychology. In 1911, Adler set himself sharply apart from the grand old man of psychoanalysis. He wanted to create a true-to-life psychology that made it possible to understand the individual from his or her individual biography. His optimistic positive teachings quickly became very popular. In the 1930's Adler was one of the best known psychologists in the world.

Based on the latest research and embedded in the context of contemporary history, Alexander Kluy traces the life of Alfred Adler, who was born in Vienna in 1870 and died unexpectedly in Scotland in 1937 at the height of his fame. This biography with newly discovered records published for the first time shows the human side of Adler – and the unbroken, highly topical effect of his work to this day.
