Adler, Alfred (1870–1937)

Born in Vienna. He held left-wing views and was knowledgeable in history, psychology and German philosophy. He had been a sickly child. He was the first of Freud's students to separate from the master; his ideas (for example, viewing the oedipus as symbolic) began to diverge in 1910. In spite of this, he was appointed as president of the Viennese Psychoanalytic Society in the same year to calm tensions caused by the naming of Jung as the president of the International Association. He resigned in the following year together with nine of the thirty-five members of the society and founded the Society for Free Psychoanalytic Study which later became the Individual Psychology Society, (willpower as an engine of character formation, expressed fundamentally in the form of masculine protest), which held its first meeting in 1911. With Stekel (Rodrigué (1996) established certain biographical similarities between the two) he founded the Zentralblatt für Psychoanalyse.
