Creator Spirit come! : the literary essays of Paul Goodman by Paul Goodman( Book )

6 editions published between 1977 and 1979 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This selection brings together Paul Goodman's best and most characteristic literary criticism, the better part of which was originally published in low-circulation journals and consequently essays have been out of print since their first appearance. Goodman felt that a single maxim lay at the bottom of all important writing: everything depends on being honest--if you write from the heart, he told his students, all else follows naturally. The essays included in this volume discuss such subjects as abstraction and literature, Kafka, popular culture, underground writing, the shape of the screen and the darkness of the theatre, Catullus, Wordsworth, Kerouac, and the Western tradition in literature

Here now next : Paul Goodman and the origins of Gestalt therapy by Taylor Stoehr( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Goodman left his mark in a number of fields: he went from being known as social critic and philosopher of the New Left to poet and literary critic to author of influential works on education (Compulsory Mis-education) and community planning (Communitas). Perhaps his most significant achievement was in his contribution to the founding and theoretical portion of the classic text Gestalt Therapy (with F.S. Perls and R.E. Hefferline, 1951), still regarded as the cornerstone of Gestalt practice. Taylor Stoehr's Here Now Next is the first scholarly account of the origins of Gestalt therapy, told from the point of view of its chief theoretician by a man who knew him well. Stoehr describes both Goodman's role in establishing the principal ideas of the Gestalt movement and the ways in which his practice as a therapist changed him, ultimately leading to a new vocation as the "socio-therapist" of the body politic. He places Goodman in the midst of his world, showing how his personal and public life - including his political activities in the 1960s - were transformed by Gestalt ideas, and he presents revealing sketches of other major figures from those days - Fritz Perls, Wilhelm Reich, A.S. Neill, and others

Crazy hope and finite experience : final essays of Paul Goodman by Paul Goodman( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the publication of Growing Up Absurd in 1960 until his death in 1972, Paul Goodman had the ear of the young radicals of the New Left, pouring forth books and articles on education, technology, decentralization, and of course, the war in Vietnam. Yet Goodman saw himself primarily as an artist rather than a political thinker or sociologist, and many of his books, even during the 1960s, were works of poetry, drama, and fiction. He had also practiced as a psychotherapist and joined with Frederick Perls and Ralph Hefferline in producing a new synthesis in psychological thought, Gestalt therapy, which has since become an international movement. In an age of specialization, few writers have taken on so broad a range of concerns. Crazy Hope and Finite Experience is a final summing up of the thought and life of this self-described "old-fashioned man of letters." This book brings together for the first time five personal essays, all written near the end of his life, in which Goodman discusses his sense of the world and how he was "in" it, his politics, his spiritual and religious attitude, his sexuality, and his calling as a literary artist. For those already familiar with one or another aspect of his work, Goodman's self-assessment will provide new insight into the credo that underlies his whole career. For those learning about him for the first time, it offers a vivid sense of the man and his perspective. And for psychotherapists - especially Gestalt therapists - the book will fill in the picture of Goodman as a theorist whose work was crucial to the development of a new approach to therapy
