Malcolm Parlett
[6 minute read]
“Have you moved away from gestalt?”, Simone asked me, a little accusingly. I had sent her a link to my Whole Intelligence Manifesto and her first impressions were that gestalt was little mentioned.

Everything seemed deceptively normal. The table where they ate their meals, the corner kitchen where they cooked, the shabby sofa where they sat and watched television. All were in their usual place ... Read More
