My Thoughts on The Courage to be Disliked

I listened to the audiobook for “The Courage to be Disliked” on a long drive.

The book is a great overview of Adlerian psychology and is structured as a dialog between a philosopher and a young student.

The philosopher makes bold claims about the nature of humanity while the student is extremely skeptical. The reader/listener, meanwhile, is invited to learn and progress in acceptance of the school of thought along with the young philosopher.

The Adlerian school of psychology (and philosophy) that Ichiro Kishimi and Fumitake Koga introduce is extremely enticing.

It makes quite a lot of sense and it seems to be a way of looking at the mind and the world that tends to lead one to living a much happier life and having much higher quality relationships with others.
