gestalt Psychology. The gestalt psychologists (Koffka, 1935; Köhler, 1940)believed that a number of innate tendencies influence the way we see.
Gestalt Psychology
"Gestalt theory began toward the close of the 19th century in Austriaand south Germany as a protest against associationist and structural schools' piecemeal analysis of experience into atomistic elements." Max Wertheimer, Wolfgang Köhler and Kurt Koffka collaborated to found Gestalt. (Britannica) Early studies dealt with illusion, for example, the Kanizsa triangle , which we used as the background for many of our pages. As you look at the Kanisza triangle, a boundary can be seen where the perceived white triangle meets the white background; a boundary between white and white!
"The Gestalt psychologists (Koffka, 1935; Köhler, 1940) believed that a number of innate tendencies influence the way we see. While many contemporary psychologists maintain that even these tendencies are the result of experience and learning, all agree that they are strong and virtually universal tendencies." (Darley et. al. 114)
David Marr
, who thought that many who investigated vision were "misled by the apparent simplicity of the act of seeing," approached the matter at a more basic level: how he recognize lines and other elements. (Marr 30) Look at the image (Gombrich 104)of "The < > must get done,"

Gestalt Theory
"The basic thesis of gestalt theory might be formulated thus: there are contexts in which what is happening in the whole cannot be deduced from the characteristics of the separate pieces, but conversely; what happens to a part of the whole is, in clearcut cases, determined by the laws of the inner structure of its whole." Max Wertheimer, Gestalt theory.

Welcome to
The GESTALT Workbench
Large amounts of 'raw' genomic sequence data already exist and continue to grow exponentially. Many tools are available for automated analysis of these data by comparison to known sequences or by pattern recognition. One of the hardest problems is how to present the sequence data and its derived annotation in an intuitive way. We present here a workbench for analysis of large-scale genomic sequence data, with strong emphasis on the production of enriched graphical representation of the analysed data. The GESTALT Workbench (GEnomic Sequence Total Analysis and Lookup Tool) can execute a variety of external analysis programmes (e.g. for gene recognition) as well as internal analyses (e.g. compositional complexity analysis); the resulting analysis output files are stored in an internal database. Integrating the analysis results, a Gestalt * is created for each sequence. Much biological insight can be obtained at a glance from these sequence pictorial representations, which prove to be a valuable aid in quick and intuitive sequence interpretation. In addition, sequences can be compared in pairwise fashion and visualised by content-annotated, bidirectional dotplots. The GESTALT Workbench is designed to pose minimal technical requirements on the user's end, and is accessible via the WWW at * Gestalt: (lit. image) a structure, configuration, or pattern of physical, biological, or psychological phenomena so integrated as to constitute a functional unit with properties not derivable by summation of its parts.

by Ian Verstegen, Temple University, PhiladelphiaCategory Science Social Sciences Psychology gestalt......gestalt PSYCHOLOGISTS ON THE gestalt SWITCH. His discussions of recentering (Umzentrierung) in problem solving is very close to the gestalt switch.
(this originally appeared in Il Cannocchiale: Rivista di Filosofia IAN VERSTEGEN (Temple University, Philadelphia, PA) By now there is a vast ilterature on the so-called gestalt switch in the philosophy of science (Aronson 1984, Kuhn 1970, Scheffler 1972, Wright 1992). It was first used to justify antirealism in science by Norwood Hanson (1958) and Thomas Kuhn (1970), based on Ludwig Wittgenstein's original "intellectualist" discussion of the duck-rabbit switch in his Philosophical Investigations (1953). Subsequently, it has been debated to what degree the observations of scientists are theory-laden by arguing how perception actually changes when we first see one object and then another, each equally supported by the same stimulus. It is remarkable that throughout the debate no one bothered to ask what Gestalt psychologists actually meant when they discussed such switches. Only Maurice Mandelbaum (1977) pointed out that Kuhn's use of the gestalt switch, based as it was on his own empiricist psychology, was wholly opposed to the original intention of Gestalt psychologists, and if "abstract" objects like a Maltese cross were substituted for recognizable objects (like ducks and rabbits), the analogy to the semantic content of opposed theories lost much of its force. It is remarkable that a conceptual relativist like Arthur Danto (1991) has admitted that "almost the precise kinds of examples. . .of penetration [of language on perception] give us the best examples of impenetrability" (p. 208).

Gestalt psychology began in Germany in 1910. While traveling by train on vacation, a 30-year-old Czech-born psychologist named Max Wertheimer was seized by an idea when he saw flashing lights at a railroad crossing that resembled lights encircling a theater marquee. He got off the train in Frankfurt am Main, where he bought a motion picture toy called a "zoetrope." When a strip of pictures is placed inside and viewed through the slits in a zoetrope, a succession of stationary pictures appear to be a single, moving picture. In his hotel room, Wertheimer made his own picture strips, consisting not of identifiable objects, but of simple abstract lines, ranging from vertical to horizontal. By varying these elements, he was able to investigate the conditions that contribute to the illusion of motion pictures, an effect that is technically known as "apparent movement" Years earlier, Wertheimer had studied in Prague with an Austrian philosopher named Christian von Ehrenfels, who had published a paper in 1890 entitled "On Gestalt Qualities" in which he pointed out that a melody is still recognizable when played in different keys, even though none of the notes are the same, and that abstract form attributes such as "squareness" or "angularity" can be conveyed by a wide range of specific elements. Clearly, argued Ehrenfels, if a melody and the notes that comprise it are so independent, then a whole is not simply the sum of its parts, but a synergistic "whole effect," or gestalt

    The following was chapter written by Gary Yontef and Jim Simkin. It appears here with the kind permission of The Gestalt Journal Press. Commentary This paper, coauthored with James S. Simkin in 1981, is probably the best general introduction to Gestalt therapy that I have written. It was the Gestalt Therapy chapter in the 1989 edition of Corsini and Wedding's Current Psychotherapies (4th Edition). It appears here with the kind permission of the publisher, F.E. Peacock, Publishers, Inc. of Itasca, Illinois. It is a slightly edited version of the 1984 chapter written jointly by Jim Simkin and myself for the third edition of Current Psychotherapies . The 1984 version was a complete rewriting of a version Jim did by himself for the second edition of Current Psychotherapies . The revisions I made in the 1989 version were minor and were made after Jim's death. GARY YONTEF Overview Gestalt therapy is a phenomenological-existential therapy founded by Frederick (Fritz) and Laura Perls in the 1940s. It teaches therapists and patients the phenomenological method of awareness, in which perceiving, feeling, and acting are distinguished from interpreting and reshuffling preexisting attitudes. Explanations and interpretations are considered less reliable than what is directly perceived and felt. Patients and therapists in Gestalt therapy dialogue , that is, communicate their phenomenological perspectives. Differences in perspectives become the focus of experimentation and continued dialogue. The goal is for clients to become aware of what they are doing, how they are doing it, and how they can change themselves, and at the same time, to learn to accept and value themselves.

About BGI

Gestalt Training

Gestalt Therapy Gestalt Therapy has become a comprehensive philosophy, theory and methodology that has consistently questioned the rational, mechanistic, power-based systems of human healing that have been in vogue in the past. Our process-orientation, person-in-environment perspective and our focus on the expansion of awareness, wholeness and dialogue, presents us with a clear global basis for a new understanding of the evolution of humankind. The Brisbane Gestalt Institute, along with the International Community of Gestalt Centres and Institutes, is committed to the on-going development and promotion of Gestalt Therapy.

gestalt Psychology Challenges Behaviorism. Some of the other perceptual phenomenaidentified by the gestalt psychologists are described in Chapter 4.
Gestalt Psychology Challenges Behaviorism
Founded by Max Wertheimer (1880-1943), Gestalt psychology surfaced as a theoretical school in Germany early in the 20th century. Gestalt psychology was based on the belief that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts (Gestalt is German for"form" or "shape"). An example of this fundamental principle is provided by the phi phenomenon, first described by Wertheimer (1912) . The phi phenomenon is the illusion of movement created by presenting visual stimuli in rapid succession. For example, movies and TV consist of separate still pictures projected rapidly one after the other. Although we see smooth motion, in reality the "moving" objects merely take a slightly different position in successive frames. The same principle is illustrated by electric signs, such as those on movie marquees or at road construction sites (see the adjacent photo). The bulbs going on and off in turn, with the appropriate timing, give the impression of motion. Of course, nothing in the sign really moves. The elements (the bulbs) are stationary. Working as a whole, however, they have a property (motion) that isn't evident in any of the parts. Some of the other perceptual phenomena identified by the Gestalt psychologists are described in Chapter 4. Gestalt psychology's emergence in 1912 was in part a reaction against structuralism, an influential school of thought in Germany at the time. Obviously, the structuralists' interest in breaking conscious experience into its component parts seemed ill advised in light of the Gestalt theorists' demonstration that the whole can be much greater than the sum of its parts. Nazi persecutions in Germany eventually forced the leading Gestalt theorists; Wertheimer, Kurt Koffka, and Wolfgang Kohler; to move to the United States, where they attacked the theoretical edifice of behaviorism. They took issue with the behaviorists on two counts. First,they saw the behaviorists' attempt to analyze behavior into stimulus-response bonds as another ill-fated effort to carve the whole into its parts. Second,they felt that psychology should continue to study conscious experience rather than shift its focus to observable behavior.
