Abstract

This article surveys a half-century journey of unfolding inquiry, thought and writing by the author – up to his most current work. Concern with relationship processes and their correlates is a core theme. The journey began with research to test Rogers' “conditions of therapy” theory; moved to new applications and development of the author's Relationship Inventory; and on through several other regions of practice and inquiry. These latter include a focus on developmental small groups; contributions on family process and on empathy; community; and the plural self in relationship. New work is in progress that extends the author's previous thought. This unfolds a relationship-centered vision of human life with development of a unified paradigm that is both system- and experience-sensitive.
