On Abstraction
Gruen, Arno
Journal of Humanistic Psychology, 18, 1, 37-45, W 78
A major means by which a culture maintains self-division and violence is abstraction. In the social sciences too, the process of employing abstraction to divorce us from ourselves is becoming increasingly more institutionalized. States that the meanings that emanate from some sectors of psychological research are also not congruent with human experience and explores that theme extensively. (Editor/RK)
