|DWELLING - CAMPBELL PURTON’S WEBSITE
This site lists my publications – it dates back to the early days of the internet, when papers were not so easy to track down as they mostly are today.
The ‘Dwelling’ name came originally from an article of that title by the philosopher and psychotherapist Eugene Gendlin, who took it (‘wohnen’) from Heidegger. For Gendlin ‘dwelling’ is closely related to what he himself called ‘focusing’, which is a kind of dwelling on a situation so as to find or create, new ways of articulating the situation. To dwell on a situation is to become familiar with its many facets, some of which are not ‘already there’, but are ‘created’ through dwelling on the situation as a whole.
