Psychological morphology is a science in development - a concept that focuses on the metamorphoses of mental figures.

It is the eternal and same basic problem: How can we give our work a form of life in a changing world - create a living image? The restlessness of mental reality seeks to take shape and at the same time to be transformed. The resulting drama is the "meaning of life".

"Freedom is not 'free will', but not being forced by fate, by other people or by the evil in the world. Obsession to assert 'free'?" (Wilhelm Salber 2015, p. 53)


The Wilhelm Salber Society (WSG) is a non-profit association for the promotion of the Psychological Morphology founded by Wilhelm Salber. It emerged in spring 2017 from the Society for Psychological Morphology (GPM), founded in 1993, and replaced it. The WSG is an association for all institutions and individuals working in the fields of application of psychological morphology.

The WSG aims to make popular Wilhelm Salber's work and his psychological-scientific method. It wants to keep his unique view on human life, art and culture alive. It also wants to promote the further development of psychological morphology and to provide an organizational framework for the professional exchange between psychologists. To this end, it regularly organises conferences, seminars and lectures and supports education and further training in psychological morphology. Last but not least, it promotes this online platform where psychologists can inform themselves and exchange informations about new developments and events.

Today, psychological morphologists are active in the most diverse fields of application. They work as market researchers and management consultants in the free economy. They are active in film research or work with concepts of morphology in psychotherapy and education. What they all have in common is that they see their subjects as complicated enterprises that seek to understand and treat each other in the given culture.

"Creation, transformation, - of the eternal sense eternal entertainment."

- J.W. von Goethe, Faust 2, Act 1.

"We describe how culture grips people, repels them, embraces them, appropriates them, smiles at them, frightens them. Culture includes when it leaves us cold, does not allow us to perceive it, or whether it moves us, brings us into play, provides us with images and orders, whether it promotes manners of dealing with reality or not. To this end, our investigations look at people while they are shopping, dressing, at work, watching television, in their conversations. This, finally, we try to understand as a totality of a survival picture, with its problems, developments, transformations and limitations." (Wilhelm Salber, anders 26/2016, S. 5)

"In dreams, a secret intelligence, which knows more about us than we know in the course of a day, has a conversation with reality."

- William Salber
