Description du produit
Revue de presse
“Adlerian psychology meets Stoic philosophy in Socratic dialogue. Compelling from front to back. Highly recommend.” (Marc Andreessen, venture capitalist and founder of Andreessen Horowitz)
"A nuanced discussion of a complex theory, with moments of real philosophical insight.... [It's] refreshing and useful to read a philosophy that goes against many contemporary orthodoxies. More than a century since Adler founded his school of psychology, there’s still insight and novelty in his theories." (Quartzy)
“[The Courage to be Disliked guides] readers toward achieving happiness and lasting change… For those seeking a discourse that helps explain who they are in the world, Kishimi and Koga provide an illuminating conversation.” (Library Journal) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition kindle_edition.
Biographie de l'auteur
Fumitake Koga is an award-winning professional writer and author. He has released numerous bestselling works of business-related and general non-fiction. He encountered Adlerian psychology in his late twenties and was deeply affected by its conventional wisdom–defying ideas. Thereafter, Koga made numerous visits to Ichiro Kishimi in Kyoto, gleaned from him the essence of Adlerian psychology, and took down the notes for the classical “dialogue format” method of Greek philosophy that is used in this book. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition paperback.

The book is based on theories of Alfred Adler, who if we go by this book, makes some very fine pointers to life and life-situations- Example- how all problems are interpersonal relationship problems, what is freedom, what is contribution, how to separate our tasks from other people's tasks, etc. and I have no issues with any of them, even if I disagree to some extent.
My problem is with the format of the book- which is that of a dialogue between a youth and a philosopher. I would have liked this book to be in some other form of narrative. The dialogue seems unnatural and contrived. The youth is portrayed as a very angry, egoistic and argumentative person. The philosopher is portrayed as someone who only speaks in Alfred Adler's terms and uses Adler's name to end the discussion or draw a conclusion, none of which seem a healthy way of debating. Things would have been better if Adler wasn't mentioned on every other page.
Also, the authors think there is a need to 'explain' what the youth is feeling after each discussion, so they add a post-script note at the end of a topic (The youth was now angry, or perspiring, or wanted to bring the philosopher to his knees, etc. etc.), which makes the dialogue seem very very forced and one-sided. I consider myself a 'youth' and I did not at all relate to the way this youth was asking questions and neither to the way the philosopher was responding.
So my suggestion - Read other works of Adler, or other authors. The gist of the book is very common to other self-development books:
Know your worth.
Let go other people's expectations of you.
Make a contribution.
Know what is real freedom.
Quit running after fame and recognition.
Remain present in the here and now.
There are other books which are far better than this and explore similar topics. If at all you decide to read this one, you can fast-read-forward to 100 pages, when the dialogue gets to the heart of the matter.
[The paper quality, fonts, layout and binding of the book are excellent. I bought a hardbound copy for Rs.414]
I think it is very relevant to life today and I honestly think it will help so many people. There is a lot of reference to difficulties that we face in everyday life and realistic solutions to think about. It makes me think about things in a different way. Also, the references to other books is helpful too. It opens up more avenues to explore spiritually and I can't wait to re-read it. I am very keen to hear my son's opinion as this is a book he would never have bought.
I will update my review soon but highly recommend
