Psychology of Trust and Feeling Conference at Stony Brook Manhattan, November 17-18 2006. Keynote speaker Eugene Gendlin's talk is entitled: "In Having More Than One Shape, the Truth is More, But It Isn't a Shape." Eugene T. Gendlin, the founder of Focusing and Experiential Psychotherapy, is one of the most influential American philosophers and psychologists. He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Chicago and taught there from 1963 to 1995. His philosophical work is concerned especially with the relationship between logic and experiential explication. His books include "Experiencing and the Creation of Meaning" (1997), "Language Beyond Post-Modernism: Saying and Thinking in Gendlin's Philosophy" (1997, edited by David Michael Levin), and "A Process Model" (1997).
