Courage refers to the willingness for risk taking and to move ahead in the presence of difficulties. The purpose of this book is to present courage as the main foundation of understanding and training for mental health in the three life task areas described by Adler: Work, Love, and Friendship. It explores the meaning of each life task and problems of fear, compensation, or evasion, as well as Adlerian insight on socially useful attitudes of approaching the task under discussion. Socratic dialog boxes are included throughout each chapter to encourage the interactivity between the text and readers’ thought processes. Also included is a set of twenty-two helping tools that were creatively designed for self-exercise or to be used to help others uncover or acquire courage. For those in the helping professions, this text will be a unique and valuable handbook for not only working with and helping their clients, but also for their own personal development.

Das englischsprachige Original dieses Buches erschien 1929 unter dem Titel ›The Science of Living‹ in den Vereinigten Staaten. In einer einfachen, knappen, dabei doch auch im Original unverwechselbar Adlerschen Sprache geschrieben, kann es als Einführung in die Grundlagen der Individualpsychologie Alfred Adlers dienen. Auch der Leser, der mit Adlers Gedankengängen noch nicht vertraut ist, kann sich über die grundlegenden Theorien des großen Sozialpsychologen informieren, der mit Freud und Jung zu den Gründervätern der Psychotherapie zählt. Auf engstem Raum werden in dem vorliegenden Buch zentrale Begriffe in Adlers Theoriengebäude wie Lebensziel, Leitbild, Minderwertigkeitskomplex, Überlegenheitsstreben und Lebensstil definiert, erläutert und anhand von Fallbeispielen anschaulich gemacht. Hier setzt sich Adler überdies mit so aktuellen Themen wie schulische Erziehung, Eheberatung und sexuelle Freiheit auseinander. Charakteristisch für seinen weitgespannten Interessenhorizont und für seine klare Erkenntnis fundamentaler menschlicher Konflikte sind schließlich auch seine Äußerungen über den gesellschaftlich bedingten Unterschied der Geschlechterrollen sowie seine Lösungsvorschläge.
