3quarksdaily: What kind of perspectivist is Nietzsche?

3quarksdaily: What kind of perspectivist is Nietzsche? | focusing_gr | Scoop.it

Against positivism, which halts at phenomena—"There are only facts"—I would say: No, facts are precisely what there is not, only interpretations. We cannot establish any fact "in itself": perhaps it is folly to want to do such a thing.
"Everything is subjective," you say; but even this is interpretation.
The "subject" is not something given, it is something added and invented and projected behind what there is.—Finally, is it necessary to posit an interpreter behind the intepretation? Even this is invention, hypothesis.
Insofar as the word "knowledge" has any meaning, the world is knowable; but it is interpretable otherwise, it has no meaning behind it, but countless meanings.— "Perspectivism."
It is our needs that interpret the world; our drives and their For and Against. Every drive is a kind of lust to rule; each one has its perspective that it would like to compel all the other drives to accept as a norm. ...

Mindfulness at the Heart of Existential-Phenomenology and Humanistic Psychology: A Century of Contemplation and Elaboration

Mindfulness at the Heart of Existential-Phenomenology and Humanistic Psychology: A Century of Contemplation and Elaboration | focusing_gr | Scoop.it

focusing_gr's insight:

Eugene Gendlin’s (1982, 1996) focusing approach to addressing the bodily awareness of sensations is informed by Merleau-Ponty’s understanding of intelligent bodily senses. Gendlin’s focusing approach attends to the relationship between logic and the here-and-now unfolding of one’s experienced “felt sense” (1996, p. 19) in a way that overlaps with DBT. For Gendlin, the felt sense corresponds to a precognitive bodily awareness that contains “the wholistic, implicit bodily sense of a complex situation” (1996, p. 58). Not unlike DBT, the felt sense does not rely on the primacy of mental activity because, according to Gendlin, the felt sense can take in and process more lived factors than rationality alone can assimilate. At the same time, Gendlin stresses that, “We always need the felt sense and rationality” (1996, p. 58), particularly when making judgments and choices. Gendlin’s therapist-facilitated attention to sensed experience involves the progressive unfolding of the felt sense through the client’s mindful attention to nonlogical steps and shifts in sensorial states and their bodily location. In doing so, the client mindfully travels through an emerging “maze of meanings” toward a fuller understanding of his or her life situation as a whole (1996, p. 58). Although the unfolding “growth direction” (1996, p. 21) of the felt sense is experientially varied, the full emergence of the client’s meaning laden bodily sense culminates in “relief” for the client, in part because the “global whole” signified by the felt sense has been understood. In other words, the client’s attentiveness to carrying forward his or her changing felt sense by carefully matching and attuning words to it occasions the lived experience of being congruently integrated—a congruent experience that is often impeded by the misunderstanding that the felt sense is “something you have, but not something you are” (1996, p. 20).

The Ladybird Guide to A Process Model, Campbell Purton

In a note to Rob Foxcroft Gene says “I do know that the Process Model is difficult to read partly because I don’t explain what I am doing until the last section of III and the section IVAd. These might be put first. I also think that some part of VIII is understandable near the beginning because that’s where the concepts come from.”...
