Read full description of the books:
This 1st book by Perls is significant because in addition to criticising Freud, it also lays the groundwork for a new system of psychotherapy. In fact it's the beginning of the gestalt therapy by one of the founding fathers of this therapy.-- Ehrenwald
Frederick Perls received his M.D. in Berlin in 1921. Like Wilhelm Reich he started out as a Freudian analyst, but under the influence of Kohler, Wertheimer & Kurt Goldstein developed his own school of analysis: Gestalt Therapy. His principles of gestalt therapy have been adopted by countless encounter & sensitivity groups.
He aims in this book to examine some psychological & psychopathological reactions of the human organism within its environment. The author is criticsl of orthodox psychoanalysis, & claims that the use of the new intellectual tools holism (field conception) & semantics (the meaning of meaning) can greatly improve our theoretical outlook.

Read information about the authorFriedrich (Frederick) Salomon Perls better known as Fritz Perls, was a noted German-born psychiatrist and psychotherapist. Perls coined the term 'Gestalt therapy' to identify the form of psychotherapy that he developed with his wife, Laura Perls, in the 1940s and 1950s. Perls became associated with the Esalen Institute in 1964, and he lived there until 1969. His approach to psychotherapy is related to, but not identical to, Gestalt psychology, and it is different from Gestalt theoretical psychotherapy.
The core of the Gestalt Therapy process is enhanced awareness of sensation, perception, bodily feelings, emotion, and behavior, in the present moment. Relationship is emphasized, along with contact between the self, its environment, and the other.
