Rather than purporting to know life's meaning, Adler set out in What Life Could Mean to You to help each of us create our own meaning for our life. He examines a wide range of themes common to all our lives, including family and school influences; adolescent development; feelings of superiority and inferiority; the importance of cooperation; the "problems of work, friendship, and love and marriage; and the individual and society. Through a fuller understanding of these areas of life and the value of each person, Adler shows how to overcome the limitations of our past and develop the courage and confidence to transform ourselves--and the world in which we live. "We must make our own lives," Adler writes. "It is our own task and we are capable of performing it. If something new must be done or something old replaced, no one can do it but ourselves. If life is approached in this way, as a cooperation of independent human beings, there are no limits to the progress of our human civilization." A contemporary of Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud, Alfred Adler was born in a Vienna suburb to a Jewish grain merchant. After becoming a medical doctor, Adler went on to found Individual Psychology and write more than 300 books and papers on child psychology, marriage, education, and the principles of individual psychology. Adler died in 1937 and is recognized along with Freud and Jung as one of the three great fathers of modern psychotherapy. The Adler Collection is also available to you which includes What Life Could Mean To You as well as the following two publications: Understanding Life which is an inspiring work that offers direction and wise counsel for increasing awareness of self, one's motivations, and the importance of each person's unique contribution to society; and Understanding Human Nature which is as relevant today as when written, this timely reprint of a classic in individual psychology shows the way to increased understanding of ourselves and our role in society.

This volume contain four of the main books written by Alfred Adler. 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: indeed, to Freud he was "the only personality there" This is an amazing collection, a must have for anybody interested in psychology. The books are: What Life Could Mean To You The Pattern Of Life The Science of Living The Neurotic Constitution What life could mean to you is one of Adler's most popular books. On the meaning of life, he begans: "Human beings live in the realm of meanings. We do not experience pure circumstances; we always experience circumstances in their significance for men. Even at its source our experience is qualified by our human purposes. " Wood " means " wood in its relation to mankind ", and " stone " means " stone as it can be a factor in human life." If a man should try to escape meanings and devote himself only to circumstances he would be very unfortunate: he would isolate himself from others: his actions would be useless to himself or to any one; in a word, they would be meaningless. But no human being can escape meanings. We experience reality always through the meaning we give it; not in itself, but as something interpreted. It will be natural to suppose, therefore, that this meaning is always more or less unfinished, incomplete; and even that it is never altogether right. The realm of meanings is the realm of mistakes."

Adler Speaks is a compilation of Alfred Adler's speeches. The initial speeches discuss the Differences between Alfred Adler's Individual Psychology and Sigmund Freud's Psychoanalysis. Additional speeches cover an array of subjects from marriage and family to specific therapeutic issues such as: bashfulness, courage, criminal behavior, eating disorders, laziness, migraines and stuttering. While Most of the chapters are relatively short, they add depth of understanding to Adler's works."I read with delight the articles in this publication, which were collected from the National Archives in Washington, D.C. While some of the content in them are by no means new to the informed Adlerian, they reflect some of Adler's basic ideas in a new light. They are a welcome addition to the Adlerian literature collection for some of the more seasoned Adlerians and are an excellent beginning for persons who are less familiar with Alfred Adler's ideas." -John F. Newbauer, Ed.D., President 2002-2004, North American Society of Adlerian Psychology
