Taos Institute Publications WorldShare Books ©2024, ISBN 978-1-958170-16-8

The present work brings together the major essays of a globally esteemed psychologist. For over 50 years his writings have represented a catalytic and creative force in pressing the boundaries of understanding and opening vistas of practice. In this volume, Gergen has selected 22 papers that he feels most significant in their expression of his scholarly passions. The citations of several of these papers number in the thousands. Others give voice to specific and sometimes off-beat issues, but always relevant to the challenge of living more viably and vibrantly together on the planet. Gergen claims no ultimate responsibility for the writings; for him they are distillations of a life in dialogue. They are not his voice, but ours.
