Portrait of the WSG member Dr. phil. Dagmar Weber. She was a member of the board of GPM (today WSG) for many years.

Since 1973 Dr. phil. Dagmar Weber (born in Cologne), graduate psychologist and psychological psychotherapist, has accompanied the developments of psychological morphology since 1973. She received her doctorate in philosophy in 1983. The second reviewer of her dissertation was Wilhelm Salber. She worked as an author and science journalist for nine years for Deutschlandfunk, and simultaneously from 1988 to 2014 as a morphological impact researcher for various clients. Among others: IFM-Freiburg,-Heidelberg, -Cologne, the rheingold-Institute, Qualitative Marketing Cologne, FilmCompany Cologne, Emsulting Cologne, Prospector - Qualitative Marketing, Saarbrücken. - As a research assistant at the Philosophy Department of the University of Cologne, she investigated the image of philosophy from a cultural psychological perspective. Established in her own psychological practice since 1996, she also worked as a psychological psychotherapist for the following 20 years.

From 1973 she sang for 30 years as soprano in the University Choir/Händel Collegium Cologne. In this context, she regularly toured Italy and France and was involved in radio and record recordings.

Numerous publications since 1983, including five books: three LYRIK volumes, two books on basic research: "Zum Problem des ästhetischen Erkennens", and 1997 "Freud 'lebt' - Kulturpsychologische Untersuchungen zum Verständnis FREUDscher Begriffe im Alltag der Gegenwart". Their long pursued question: "Can we understand systems without putting them into stories? On May 6, 1998, the book by Dagmar Weber was recommended on the Internet by the ZDF Nachtstudio as part of the program "Die Lesart der Seele - Freud und die Folgen".

We submitted our questionnaire to Dr. Weber:

Dr Weber, what do you wish for the future of the WSG?
That she survives. - As once thought since 1993 as an umbrella organisation (GPM) a 'home' for all people who work psycho-logically morphologically. Thanks to this website, which makes it possible to offer lectures and talks even in "Corona" times, to enjoy, to stay in exchange and especially to give other people an insight into the fascinating everyday reality by testing a different way of seeing and learning to see.

Which area or phenomenon of human life should be morphologically investigated?
The manifold discrimination of women in all areas of life.

Through which points of contact did you get to know the psychological morphology?
Experience of paradoxes at the age of six to ten years: What is gone is there; what is dead (the father), lives (in the nightly dream). - By experiencing: "Dreams have a SENSE! There once was one called JOY! He analysed dreams", I exclaimed loud and moved: "I do that too! When I grow up I will analyze dreams too." - Eight years later, at the 1970 Carnival, my oldest stepsister's best friend and I celebrated Weiberfastnacht in the Olshausen-Keller in Dürener Straße; she knew that I wanted to take my school-leaving exams to study psychology and finally learn Freud's dream analysis. "There's an exotic guy here in Cologne who does ART PERSONAL PERSYCHOLOGY" - that sounded tempting, especially since I myself secretly wrote and painted. - "What's his name?" "WILHELM SALBER" - "That's who I want to see." - Right after high school, I applied to study psychology in Cologne. Absolutely no admission. - In the summer of 1973, I got my courage and went to the long-awaited lecture in the basement of the main building of the university. When I saw Wilhelm Salber there for the very first time in my life, I was once again caught in the middle of a paradox: The way he looked, the sound of his voice, everything totally foreign, the black leather vest, even that he wore a signet ring on his little finger; the professors I knew by now from philosophy and geography usually dressed in anthracite, grey, blue suits with white shirts, rigid ties or they wore chequered flannel shirts, hiking shoes on their feet. - But that, w-a-s Wilhelm Salber said, by letting his lecture develop free-spoken - all my favourite things: literature, art, philosophy, fairy tales, philosophy of science - it was uncanny: as if he was saying exactly what I myself think. At that time I was 21 years old - I had just come of age.

Which psychological book do you use from time to time?
"Everyday Life is Not Grey" from 1989 / "Psychology in Pictures" from 1983, which he wrote after his analysis at Anna Freud in London, which must have been like a kind of 'rebirth' for him - finally. Free at last! To be allowed / to be able to write playfully now. I often recommend "Gestalt auf Reisen" from 1991 as an introduction to psychological morphology.

Which country would you like to visit one day?
That 'country' that Hannelore Schröder* on 3.12.1977 - on Anna Freud's birthday! - as a supplement to "The Parliament, Bonn", namely: OLYMPE DE GOUGES: "Declaration of the Rights of Women and Citizens (1791)". (*Member of the Board of the International Association of Women Philosophers, born 1935).

Gestalt and transformation is the central primal phenomenon of psychological morphology: who or what would you like to transform yourself into for a day?
At the age of 3-7 I would have said: ballet dance in the open space of the stage / at the age of 10-28 I would have said: organist - at 24 I wrote the fairy tale, "Of the girl who lived in her organ". - Now I would like to be able to play all the works of Johann Sebastian Bach - like him. - A pilot who steers a Cessna ... and knows the weather conditions very well.

Dr Weber, thank you for your answers.
