It may seem like very little has been left undiscovered in the life and work of Alfred Adler, his children, and the first-generation Adlerians. Occasional new discoveries typically do not add much to the body of known facts about Adler’s life or the history of Adler’s Individual Psychology. However, placed in a unique social context, each new story brings more than a new fact to readers. Russian psychoanalyst Valery Leibin’s remembrances of his relations with Adler’s Individual Psychology and with Individual Psychologists, dating back to the 1980s, addressing some events in the 1930s, and being shared now in 2017, hit on a raw nerve of connections and disconnections, commonalities and differences, and what ultimately keeps humankind together. Readers will see the penetrating power of the human need to belong, to contribute to binding communal knowledge, and to connect across theories, through the Iron Curtain, and over the political walls of the 1930s, the 1980s, and 2018.
