The Philosophy of Understanding - Universal knowledge & values a 7-chapter study of human understanding in general; its nature, main structure, functions and likely limits. The full scope of explicit forms of understanding is considered, from practical, inter-personal, communicational, scientific and philosophical understanding to ethical and metaphysical insight. The scientific model of explanation is not included here as it is adequately covered by many other publications
Human Whole - An Outline of Human Psychology a 23-chapter book,
revised, extended edition 1998 - revised 2004, 2012 - partly still under revision). This book aims to give an understanding of person-centered human psychology in clear terms avoiding scientific-technical
language. It would provide a frame
of reference to aid in integrating personal understanding of oneself and of others. Basic assumptions of modern Western psychology are
re-interpreted where relevant and brought into an overall perspective, one which focuses on psychic health, consciousness, human possibilities and challenges
of personal development. It deals only secondarily with the science of behaviourism and bodily conditioning,
psychopathology or psychic illness.
