ARAUJO, Iago Cavalcante  e  FREIRE, José Célio. Peter Schmid and radical alterity: reapproaching the dialogue between rogers and lévinas. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2017, vol.23, n.2, pp. 220-230. ISSN 1809-6867.

The Person Centered Approach (PCA), founded by Carl Rogers, can only be justified by ethics and not as an application of skills and knowledge. However, PCA, at first, neglects the radical alterity postulated by Lévinas. This Other is not an expressive figure to psychologies as seems to be. The Levinasian Other is precedent and transcendent to the I; not being possible to totalize and understand it fully; it shows the dimension of the strange in the psychological experience. On the other hand, Peter Schmid conceives that ethics is the first issue to be considered when it comes to PCA, either its theory or its practice; establishes a fruitful dialogue with the Levinasian philosophy. This paper presents the contributions of Peter Schmid to the Rogerian psychology. It was found that Schmid shows a new way of dealing with the alterity within the framework of the Rogerian approach.

Palavras-chave : Person centred approach; Ethics; Peter Schmid; Emmanuel Lévinas.
