LECTURE NOTES, SUMMARIES, AND LINKS
   
Dear Friends: After 41 years of at Sonoma State University, I have moved from regular faculty to Emeritus status. I am not teaching regular classes (although I occasionally do workshops at SSU, other institutions and venues, and professional conferences.) I am no longer actively maintaining most of the materials below. Nonetheless, you may find some of them useful. Expect some broken links. You may also want to visit my new site, now under development, at http://www.consciousnessandculture.com/
 
GESTALT THERAPY AND GESTALT PSYCHOLOGY. Lecture notes include the history of Gestalt Psychology and Gestalt Therapy and Kurt Lewin's Field Theory. There are links to a spectrum of historic and contemporary online articles.
 
HUMANISTIC AND EXISTENTIAL PSYCHOLOGY. Of particular interest are lecture notes and links on Rollo May, Abraham Maslow, Erich Fromm, Paolo Freire, and Carl Rogers, among others.
 
EXISTENTIALISM AND PHENOMENOLOGY. Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Jose Ortega y Gassett, extensive lecture notes on phenomenology, and more.
 
ASIAN AND TRANSPERSONAL PSYCHOLOGIES. Notes and links on yogic traditions and psychologies, Buddha's original teachings, Buddhist traditions including Zen and Vipassana, Taoist and Confucian traditions, Sufi teachings, Jesus' original teachings, and more
 
HISTORY OF PSYCHOLOGY. Popular items include "Psychology in Greek Philosophy" and lecture notes on Object Relations Theory, Wilhelm Reich, Karen Horney, Carl Jung, Alfred Adler, John B. Watson, and The Medieval Period & the Renaissance. (Clark Hull is less often viewed.)
 
LEARNING, COGNITION, & BEHAVIOR. This page consists entirely of links, primarily to innovative educational approaches and traditions.
 
SOCIAL FIELD ANALYSIS. My own unique approach to understanding social phenomena, still under development. It synthesizes elements of field theory, general systems theory, and gestalt psychology.

DISCLAIMER: For the benefit of my students, on this website I have posted many of my lecture notes, written quickly for my own use, complete with numerous typos that I did not have time to correct. These are available to you and they come as they are. Others are carefully proofread and revised for posting and are of excellent quality. I have visited and reviewed all sites to which links are posted, and in many cases have provided a sentence or two of commentary on the site. Linked items linked are of varying quality. You will doubtless find some dead links on pages that I have not reviewed recently.
