Postmodern Therapies News/PMTN (Lois Shawver)

"This is the newsletter for the Postmodern Therapies (PMTH) listserv.  It will inform you of news relevant to our discussions and provide you with a growing body of summaries and full-text articles relevant to postmodern therapies.  Bookmark it and check it often.  New editions appear every few days." (site description) In collaboration with PMTH listserv participants, Lois Shawver has built an essential guide to the language and philosophical background to a range of postmodern therapeutic approaches. In the PMTH Toolbox, she has provided a dictionary/glossay of terms, short biographical descriptions, and a host of other resources. Shawver is acknowledged as one of the most adept and clear interpreters of Wittgenstein currently writing and brings similar clarity to other postmodern writers (Lyotard, Foucault, etc.).
