Example text

So much is of the essence of Adler's teaching~, for what is important is the nature of the purposive element in the response of each individual to circumsta~ce. We do not abandon the theory of psychic determinism, as an objective account, if we say that, subjectively, each individual must accept responsibility for his own, logically necessary, participation in the course of events. Active work, in a measure psychiatric, in a measure sociological, in a measure educational, but always pedagogic, is now being carried on with increasing success in children's clinics in Vienna and in other cities and towns abroad.

The anger and rage which we should expect to find in this phase of life is, therefore, generally suppressed and hidden, though it may break out occasionally, and they rationalise their hopeless attitude by turning all their accusation against themselves. In cases of melancholia many persons actually kill themselves, in an excess of self-condemnation, while sometimes ostentatiously exonerating others. A very intelligent woman, forty-six years of age, had suffered from melancholia for three years, eight years before she came to me.

The individual then breaks down before all the three questions of life, and every step he takes is made in defiance of logic. In this connection, what we mean by logical is that which is intelligible as an attempt to solve a real problem of life. An example of psychotic development may be given in the life of an elderly woman, excluded from occupation and from love. She is offended because society, her children and sons-in-law do not take enough interest in her. If she has not developed sufficient social feeling to take a keen interest in the lives of others, her case is indeed a difficult one; for the goal of superiority still attracts her as much as anyone, and keeps her striving without any definite objective.
