هذا الكتاب ارتقى بي الى ذروة الشبق العقلي^_^
Thelbert Dewain Belgard
This is a great book -- one of the early attempts to understand human nature in the framework of scientific inquiry rather than philosophy, religion, or metaphysics. I read it in what I think was the first Fawcett edition (Fawcett Premier Book). This little paperback in a tiny font that I find difficult. But I'm rating the ideas, not the format. The most significant contribution of the book is summarized in this quotation: "No one can lift himself above society, demonstrate his power over his fe ...more

Adler, daha çok aşağılık kompleksi, telafi mekanizmaları, aşırı telafi ve gizli karşıtlar üzerinden çalışmalarını yürüten bir psikologtur. Bu kitabında da daha çok bu kuramlarının üzerinden insan ve toplum ilişkilerini tanımlama çalıştığını görüyoruz.

Adler, sosyal darwinist bir yaklaşımla her davranış, kalıp ve algıyı, yetersizlik - yeterlilik üzerinden yargılıyor. Her davranışın esasen karşıt anlamını içerdiğini ifade eden psikolog, kendini beğenmişliğin aslında kişinin kendine duyduğu nefretin

كتاب الطبيعة البشرية لعالم النفس الفريد أدلر يشرح من خلاله أسس علم النفس الفردي ومكونات الشخصية ويحلل المشاعر البشرية الكتاب مكتوب بلغة علمية جافة جدا كما أن معظم المعلومات المذكورة فيه معروفة بالنسبة لأي شخص قرأ في علم النفس لأنه كتاب قديم الكتاب ليس سيئا ولا ليس ممتازا

Of all the primary sources so far, Freud is the most captivating in his writing ability, and I think Adler is the most humane. I appreciate his attempt to look at the individual with respect to communal life and relationships, as he was the first, and much has been borrowed from him. His theory is, like Freud, cohesive and very well-articulated. A few of the sections I find insightful. Three stars is for Adler as a writer, not for Individual Psychology as a therapeutic model.
Mark Kumleben
A tremendously observant and useful book. An adapted series of lectures, so a bit disorganized, but still a good introduction to Adler's thought for a reader with some knowledge of his historical context and the general psychological terms used.

الكتاب مفيد جدا ساعدنى إني أفهم بعض تصرفاتي وتصرفات اللي حوليا حسيت بعض المبالغة في تفسير أغلب التصرفات إنها بسبب البحث عن التفوق اعتقد إن النفس البشرية أعقد من كده لكن الكتاب كمجمل مفيد وسهل الفهم بالنسبة لغير المتخصصين
والترجمة كانت جيدة جدا

Adler outlines his idea for what it means to be a healthy human. That individual is one who is adjusted socially and willing to serve or help humankind. Those who are not socially oriented this way suffer from numerous psychological maladies that Adler calls generally desire for power and dominance, which he sees, again generally, as compensation for various social shortcomings. "Two great tendencies," he writes, "dominate all psychic phenomena. These two tendencies, the social feeling, and the ...more

the only part I am not impressed is when he say vanity distance people from reality, even if any human action should be acceptable or logical by teleology,

but I think deontological moral take place in such action to distance us from unvirtuous action, force unreality to become true by contrary or fight the power

Had this book for a long time and only now read it.
Well, easier to read that Freud. And I better like Adler's writing style. I found some answers to my questions in this book. It helped me to understand why I act this or another way. But will I change? NO. It's just a book that helped me to understand myself and other people.

This was an interesting read, and considering the topic, rather fast. I wasn't agonizing over the pages, which made me happy.

Alfred Adler had some very distinct viewpoints on human beings, and that we as people struggle with inferiority and superiority complexes. His ultimate view is that neither are healthy, and that we need to always keep in mind what is best for the social good. That is the real judge of all actions: Is this contributing to society?

It was a thought provoker...but I'm not sur

I'm a much bigger fan of Adler's writings than what became Adlerian Psychology. His approach to human behavior is much healthier than Freud who had a dark view of human nature. Instead of wondering 'what's wrong with people' like Freud, Adler looked at their goals and behaviors.
Adler's writings inspired me to write The Psychology of Jesus. Jesus focused on where people were in relationship to each other and how they moved not on 'what was wrong with them'.

정말 꾸역꾸역 겨우겨우 읽은 책.
(그래도 용케도 역자후문까지 다 갔다 ㅋㅋㅋ)

애초에 개론서처럼 쓰여진게 문제인가 싶기도 하고
번역이 잘못된건가 싶기도 하고 (특히 마지막 장, 자만감)
여튼 고압적인 말투로 갖가지 주장을 펼치는데 딱히 근거도 제시되어 있지 않고
그저 (나에게) 증명되지 않는 예시 몇 개로 성급한 일반화 해서 좀 짜증났을 뿐더러
전반적인 논조에 동의도 공감도 이해도하기 어려웠던
여튼 보면서 내둥 불만이었던 책.
(특히 최근에 읽기 시작한 <이기적 유전자>랑 너~어무 비교됨-_- 솔찍히 논리적 비약 때매 1점쯤 주고 싶어)

하지만 읽고 나서 며칠쯤 지나고
내가 사람들과 대화를 할 떄마다 이 책에 쓰인 내용들을 자꾸 언급하는 것을 보면, 이 책을 쥐고 있었던 시간이 그리 낭비만은 아니었다는 생각도 든다. (그래서 무려 3점)

먼 훗날 다시 읽어볼 일은 없을 것 같지만-_-;
1927년 당시에는 이 또한 획기적인 이론들이었겠단 사실은 인정을 해줘도 되지 않을까 싶기도.

만나서

İnsanın, bir birey olarak barındırdığı duyguları, bu duyguların gelişimi, topluma etkisi ve toplumdan etkilenişini, bireyin psikolojik gelişim sürecini ve toplumsal değerlerini temiz bir ülupla lakin az örnekle incelemiş olan kesinlikle okunması gereken bir eser.
Greg
This was the first psychology book I read. Very good reading, though the 'too much of this is bad and too little of this is bad' without ever saying what would be considered good got a little frustrating.

A Must-Read for everyone interested in psychology!

أُعجبت بفكرة أدلر الجديدة في علم النفس الفردي ..
أقنعني بميزان : البحث عن القوة والشعور الاجتماعي..
وعن مدى تأثير علاقة الابناء بالأم على علاقتهم بالمجتمع !

This fine book shows why Adler, in creating a synthesis of Freud and Jung, had surpassed them both without anyone noticing.
Kristin
I didn't get all the way through but I do like some of Adler's ideas as they relate to childhood and the family constellation.

Alfred Adler (February 7, 1870 – May 28, 1937) was an Austrian medical doctor, psychotherapist, and founder of the school of individual psychology. His emphasis on the importance of feelings of inferiority - the inferiority complex - is recognised as isolating an element which plays a key role in personality development

“we limit ourselves to normal cases of mutual influence, we find that those people are most capable of being influenced who are most amenable to reason and logic, those whose social feeling has been least distorted. On the contrary, those who thirst for superiority and desire domination are very difficult to influence. Observation teaches us this fact every day.” 2 likes
