Insight Into Value: An Exploration of the Premises of a Phenomenological Psychology

Fuller, Andrew R.

 A psychologist sets forth the tenets of a phenomenological psychology that would deal with the fullness of human behavior just as it appears and in its own terms. In this book he applies a method that "consists in clarifying psychological concepts at their source in experience" (p. xi). Such a psychology would be a boon to exceptional human experiences, because it would not require that they be proven before they could be studied. Moreover, this method is aimed at the meaning of human experience, and it appears that EHEs are among the most meaningful experiences a human being can have, because through them contact is felt with that which is experienced as beyond the skin-encapsulated ego. Fuller’s method is rooted in two great schools of thought: Gestalt psychology and existential phenomenology, which he says "complement and mutually enrich one another" (p. xii). Fuller introduces a dialogic relationship between them which illumines our understanding human behavior.
