Explores the idea of personal or psychological growth in light of the concept, self-actualisation that refers to a process through which persons develop from one stage of self-understanding to another more integrated stage. Pedagogical and psychological frameworks are used to discuss the theme theoretically as well as its practical implications.
This was stressed, among others, by the Gestalt psychologist Kurt Goldstein (
1878 – 1965), who, after his emigration to the USA, became more famous as an “
organismic theorist”.1 Therefore the term “self” in “self-actualization” functions as

Niemand bezweifelt, dass zwischen dem Reparieren einer Maschine und der Psychotherapie mit Menschen grundlegende Unterschiede bestehen. Dennoch entstammen die Metaphern und Konzepte, mit denen wir psychotherapeutische Prozesse beschreiben oft einem mechanistischen Weltverstandnis. Die Forderung von Prozessen der Selbstorganisation und Selbstaktualisierung wird immer noch zu wenig berucksichtigt, obwohl diese Konzepte im Rahmen der modernen Systemtheorie selbst in den Naturwissenschaften inzwischen hohe Bedeutung erlangt haben. Dieser Band (in Englisch) macht mit grundlegenden Konzepten im Zusammenhang mit Selbst-Aktualisierung vertraut."
Goods reflect the creative actualization of good instances; instances that have
been creatively actualized are “goods.” Only where ontological prejudices have
prevailed, or the metaphysics of subjects and objects, are goods evaluated as

This book presents a major new value theory, value as creative actualization. The book takes a radically new approach to values. All potential values, whether artistic, scientific, political, or economic must be creatively actualized in the world. The theory argues for an active view in which value involves creation of novelties and thereby changes the world in some respect. Thus value is neither transcendent nor subjective, as a good of some sort has emerged in the world. Moreover, creative actualization means we can actualize standards, ideals, kinds and other norms. Creative actualization thereby dissolves the distinction between idealism and realism, since value changes the OC realOCO with novel goods. The ideal is made real by creative actualization. The book examines traditional issues such as inherent value, modes, and meaning in the light of value as creative actualization. The later part of the book critically evaluates the history of value theory, arguing that it is insensitive to the environment and inconsistent with inherent values. Creative actualization extends historical pragmatism in novel ways. This value theory includes an ecocentric ethic, tying value theory to debates in environmental philosophy. The theory attempts to take the environment into consideration in ethics."

This collection of papers consolidates the observation that linguistic change typically is actualized step by step: any structural innovation being introduced, accepted, and generalized, over time, in one grammatical environment after another, in a progression that can be understood by reference to the markedness values and the ranking of the conditioning features. The Introduction to the volume and a chapter by Henning Andersen clarify the theoretical bases for this observation, which is exemplified and discussed in separate chapters by Kristin Bakken, Alexander Bergs and Dieter Stein, Vit Bubenik, Ulrich Busse, Marianne Mithun, Lene Schosler, and John Charles Smith in the light of data from the histories of Norwegian, English, Hindi, Northern Iroquoian, and Romance. A final chapter by Michael Shapiro adds a philosophical perspective. The papers were first presented in a workshop on "Actualization Patterns in Linguistic Change" at the XIV International Conference on Historical Linguistics, Vancouver, B.C. in 1999.
Fortunately , in the age of science , it is not difficult to detect such rational
pathologies , precisely because of their discordance with the entelechtical
process . * An unconditional or unreserved commitment to self - actualization is
therefore the ...

In this the first volume of a proposed three-part series devoted to the idea & implementation of a world federalist order, Joseph Sassoon offers what he considers to be a prerequisite to the type of political structure entailed by world federalism; namely a comprehensive value system derived from the true nature of the human organism, & a technology designed to lead to maximal self-acualization of the individual in society-to the fufilment in other words, of individual potentials & capacities in the greatest measure possible. The result of a unique & lengthy research, the author presents a new & radical theory of self-actualization, & with a clear & comprehensive technology aimed at enhancing the likelihood of self-realization, & bounded by a humanistic code of morals distilled from civilization's great faiths, philosophies & political systems. It is in short a text of ontopsychology-the psychology of health as distinct from that of disorder-& hence the only basis for a new order in a shrinking planet moving towards unity. "Sassoon's title will prove a delight to any who want studious, well-presented & exciting new theories of world government & psychological health."--The Midwest Book Review.
