The founders of Gestalt Therapy have left us with a number of theoretical islands in the sea of the gestalt approach, but also included are the theoretical insecurity, gaps and inconsistencies. What do we have to accept ? What do we have to complied? What new results may have an effect or repercussion?
The theory of gestalt therapy is based not only on gestalt psychology, but also and to a considerable degree on phenomenology. Among phenomenologists, it was mainly the traditional theorists like Husserl, Heidegger, and Merleau-Ponty who were considered relevant for gestalt therapy.
