As mentioned in the recent Newsletter, the upcoming workshop in Toronto -July 20th - 21st, 2013 will focus on The Entrance Problem of Psychology. Also mentioned was that this gathering is envisioned less as an event for formal presentations and more as a "workshop" space, a place to "go to work" at deepening our comprehension and familiarity with PDI.
In order to prepare for the time together, some members of the Executive Committee have drawn up a list of selected writings that are relevant to the topic of The Entrance Problem of Psychology. Of course the topic is not limited to these selections.
The idea here is that by spending time with some of these writings in the months leading up to the workshop, the days spent together in Toronto will have a rich impact on all of us.
