Eugene Gendlin's contribution to the theory of language is the focus of this collection of essays. This compilation of critical studies - each followed by a comment from Gendlin himself - investigates how concepts grow out of experience, and explores relations between Gendlin's philosophy of language and experience and the philosophies of Wittgenstein, Dilthey, and Heidegger. The breadth of the anthology is illustrated by its list of contributors: William James Earle, Veronique Foti, Eugene Gendlin, Lawrence Hatab, Mark Johnson, David Kolb, David Michael Levin, Kenneth Liberman, Joseph Margolis, J. N. Mohanty, Graeme Nicholson, Robert C. Scharff, Hans Julius Schneider, Jerald Wallulis, and Meredith Williams.

"Eugene Gendlin's heightened sensitivity to language as a creative event of discourse on the hither side of sedimented theories of linguistics is unique both among his predecessors and his contemporaries. It is thus that the critical essays in the current volume, addressing various facets of Gendlin's consummate contribution to the philosophy of language, provide a valuable resource for all practitioners of the discipline." --Calvin O. Schrag, Purdue University
