Volume 4: The collected Clinical Works of Alfred Adler

New Translations by Gerald L. Liebenau -  Edited by Henry T. Stein, Ph.D.

In forty-three articles published from 1921 to 1926, Adler illuminates the heights and depths of human nature. Reflecting his growing interest in the prevention of neurosis and crime, he addresses child guidance issues of problem children, punishment, delinquency, neurotic parents, and faulty education. After commenting on the challenges of puberty, and male and female sexuality, in "Marriage as a Mutual Task, he offers timeless guidelines for developing a healthy partnership.

His articles on neurosis, crime, depression, sadism, and masochism offer classic insights into the varieties of psychopathology, but again, his comments about homosexuality reflect the common bias of his time and culture. In "Danton, Marat, Robespierre: A Character Study, Adler takes on the leading figures in the French Revolution, unveiling the personality dynamics that sparked a revolutionary spirit.

His vision of the future and the direction of social evolution is crystallized in "Critical Considerations on the Meaning of Life and "Individual Psychology and World View – Parts I & II. In "Remarks on a Lecture by Prof. Max Adler (A Viennese sociologist, not related to Alfred Adler), he speaks to a number of political issues, including Marxism. In his provocative article "Discussion on Paragraph 144, Legalizing Abortion, Adler supports a woman’s right to terminate a pregnancy. This article about legalizing abortion champions a position considerably ahead of his time.

He emphasizes the self-training purpose of dreaming in "Change of Neurosis and Training in the Dream. Finally, in "On Neurosis and Talent, he challenges widespread, common assumptions about talent and its development. Adler offers encouraging perspectives on occupational aptitude and interest. He emphasizes the importance of an optimistic world view and philosophy of living, and cautions us about the dangers of distance and isolation. Once again, Adler spreads his deep wisdom over an abundant range of topics.

For readers unfamiliar with Adlers ideas, a brief overview, titled "Basic Principles of Classical Adlerian Psychology, is included in the appendix. Other comprehensive articles, titled "Classical Adlerian Theory and Practice and "A Psychology of Democracy have been published in Volumes 1 & 2 of The Collected Clinical Works of Alfred Adler. Studying all of the volumes in this series provides an essential perspective on the development of Adlers theory.
