0 Reviews
This book presents a systematic working out of the basic concepts of phenomenological psychology through an interdisciplinary synthesis of gestalt psychology and existential phenomenological thought.

The author’s theory returns to psychology’s foundations and interrogates the psyche itself, applying it to the full range of human behavior as a living of value. This work is presented as a viable alternative to mainstream modern—Cartesian—psychology. The book’s first half is devoted primarily to an examination of everyday meaning/value while the second half looks at the behavior of insight into meaning/value.
