Bruce Tate: 'I Know What I Want. And I Want It NOW!'

Adler proposed that our social context includes feeling a part of wider systems. The human race has recently been classified a 'super predator' species and is using the planet's resources in unsustainable and damaging ways. This session will examine some of the impacts of human activity and place this in the context of Adler's notions of social interest, looking at what are 'wants' as opposed to 'needs'.

Bruce is a senior tutor on both the Adlerian Certificate and Diploma course at Bottisham Village College and has presented workshops at ICASSI, the international summer school, and is now a council member. He also has a private practice.
