Rather than purporting to know life's meaning, Adler set out in
"What Life Could Mean to You" to help each of us create our "own"

understanding of these areas of life and the value of each person,
Adler shows how to overcome the limitations of our past and develop
the courage and confidence to transform ourselves--and the world in
which we live.

in 1937 and is recognized along with Freud and Jung as one of the
three great fathers of modern psychotherapy.
