Citing pages as in the original printed text

The documents in the Gendlin Online Library are scanned from the original printed texts. The page numbers of the originals are included in most of the online documents. Eventually all the documents in the Library will have the page numbers of originals.

Readers and researchers can cite the individual page numbers inside their online documents with the confidence that they are exactly as in the paper original.

It is also possible to cross-link from your own web pages to documents in the Library and right down to the original page numbers contained within them. Two examples follow.

Example 1

In the Preface to the 1997 edition of Experiencing and the Creation of Meaning Gendlin comments that philosophy has moved towards him and that "The book fits the times much better now" (p. xi). This shift towards him is, perhaps, not unrelated to ...

... a great development in human experiencing, with therapeutic and interpersonal processes. Where people used to be silent, now they have a developed vocabulary with which to explore and express their experiential and relational intricacies. The old community in which people related mostly in roles has broken down, and new kinds of community in which we can relate from our intricacy are only just beginning to develop, from coming freshly into language (for example, "focusing partnerships," "changes groups," and many kinds of support groups). How to think with all this is an exciting and still very open question. (Gendlin, 1997 p. xiv)

Example 2

Thinking at the Edge helps people articulate that which is otherwise very hard to say or think (see Gendlin, 2004 p. 3).
