Default Cumulative Discussion of CCWAA, Vol. 7, Chapters I-VII

On November 7th, we will begin a discussion of The Collected Clinical Works of Alfred Adler, Volume 7, Chapter I. The following chapter summary was prepared by Manu Jaaskelainen.

Chapter I in Volume 7 of the CCWAA The Neurotic Character, (1931) continues the same theme as Chapter XXVI in Volume 6. According to Adler's argument, a description of character does not mean a description of the total inner life - character is not immutable. Descriptions are needed because there is no single concept that would be able to express what we mean e.g. by "neurotic character". A character means "social attitude". Thus, it reflects the inner realities and the social realities of the environment. Adler proceeds to discuss the various manifestations of neurosis and concludes his paper referring to the need for more counseling centers in connection of schools. He believes that all education should aim at expanding and solidifying social feeling.
