Dr Jean Neumann, the Tavistock Institute’s Senior Fellow in Scholarly Practice presents, as part of ‘Lectures and other presentations’, the second part in a series of 4 articles summarising selected Lewinian principles. Each article demonstrates Kurt Lewin’s continuing relevance today by taking examples from both the archive and contemporary practice.This second instalment turns to Lewin’s ‘Field Theory Rule’, while the first addressed Lewin’s ‘Dynamic Approach Rule’.
