A Process Model

Eugene T. Gendlin; Foreword by Robert A. Parker

A foundational text by Eugene Gendlin, increasingly recognized as one of the most original contemporary thinkers, A Process Model demonstrates how human behaving, perceiving, speaking, and everyday living arise from body-environment interaction. Gendlin creates “an alternative model in which we define living bodies in such a way that one of them can be ours.”
