About this product
- DescriptionThis book examines how individual, social, scientific, and ideological realities are constructed, after which we naively assume they are the real realities. Contributors include Ernst von Glaserfeld (kwn for his cognitive studies with chimpanzees); cybeneticist Heinz von Foerster; David L. Rosenhan (author of On Being Sane in Insane Places); microbiologist Francisco J. Varela; and Gabriel Stolzenberg, professor of mathematics at Northeastern University. Paul Watzlawick has contributed commentary, an introduction and an epilogue, and two of the ten essays. For educated readers, this is the first multidisciplinary presentation of a subject of vital importance to the way we think and live.
- Author BiographyPaul Watzlawick was an associate at the Mental Research Institute, Palo Alto, and clinical professor in the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences, Stanford University Medical Center. An internationally known psychologist, Watzlawick died in 2007.
