Past Event : Remembering Alfred Adler: Psychology, Purpose and Meaning - Dr David Carey



Event Title:   Remembering Alfred Alder: Psychology, Purpose and Meaning


Alfred Adler, a contemporary of Freud and his chosen successor, is now no more than a small chapter in a book or a brief lecture in university courses. Yet Adler was the first of the great psychologists to put meaning and purpose, belonging and striving for unity, in the forefront of his theory. It's time to remember Adler and ask an important question. Has psychology lost it's soul?
