Default Re: Adlerian Psychobiography and Psychohistory

To "kick off" a new thread on this topic, I just discovered that the O.S.S. has de-classified a psychological study of Adolf Hitler made in 1943 by Henry Murray (developer of the Thematic Apperception Test). Although he was not an Adlerian, the insights he presents utilize terms that are identical or similar to Adler's constructs. The document can be found online at You may have trouble printing the pages, so read as much as you can online.

Another resource that might be worth comparing to the Murray analysis, is Adolf Hitler: A Psycholgocal Interreptation of His Views on Architecture, Art, and Music, by Sheree Owens Zalampa. She attempts an Adlerian interpretation of his childhood and adult life.
