Thinking Freshly from Experiencing
How Gendlin's Philosophy of the Implicit helps you Think at the Edge
With Eugene T.Gendlin Ph.D. and Nada Lou
DVD One and Two
In this two-part DVD, you will have the opportunity not only to follow the Thinking at the Edge practice step by step, but to hear many of The Philosophy of the Implicit (POI) concepts explained by its creator and originator Dr. Gene Gendlin in refined and accessible ways.
Increasingly there has been a great interest in his philosophy, his writings, and two Philosophical practices; Focusing and TAE. These life generative practices are reaching many people all over the world through many teachers, books, videos and varied applications.
Nada had a role in teaching the steps during this workshop. Gene took an opportunity to DO his own process. It is the most fascinating and instructive aspect of this series - we see his thinking evolving on the spot as he uses the TAE steps to carry forward his own process - a living example of philosophy applied in a philosopher's real life!
The first DVD moves you through the "Speaking from the felt sense" and "Finding the patterns" steps. The second takes you through "Open Logic, Concepts and Theory building from experience".
Those already familiar with Gendlin's language and concepts through his philosophical works will find these concepts discussed and explained through conversation and lively exchanges. Some key concepts include: "Implying and Occurring", "Patterns and Space", "Felt Sense/Direct Referent", "Relationship between the logical closed and experiential open Theory", "Reversal" , IOFI", "How body creates Language", "Inherency", "Deriving" ,"Thinking from the organism" and many others.
Satisfying to philosophers and non-philosophers alike, this series provides a way for viewers to engage with these new and exciting concepts and points the way to how they can be used by anyone to generate further fresh thinking from experiencing.
