Social Interest

Adler's Key to the Meaning of Life

The first new translation of Social Interest since its original English publication in 1938

According to Alfred Adler, one of the founding fathers of modern psychoanalysis alongside Freud and Jung, an individual’s level of social interest is key to his or her success in solving the problems of life, from forming meaningful relationships to achieving promotion in the workplace. Withstanding the test of time, this practical psychology continues to inform our way of life, influencing such areas as education, psychotherapy and healthcare.

"It is Adler's emphasis on the importance of social interest that marks his work as being of profound importance today."

– James Hemming
