Pierre is the inventor of philosophical midwifery in its modern sense, and has been practicing it since his days with Alan Watts in the 1950's. His book, Philosophical Midwifery: A New Paradigm for Understanding Human Problems, with Regina Uliana PhD, was published in 1998 (ISBN-10 softcover: 0-9648191-1-2; hardcover 0-9648191-2-0) and is available from Hyparxis Press.
The movement from the pathologos to the logos and to enlightenment experiences proceeds along a well-defined route composed of a series of probing questions that uncover unsuspected false beliefs about the Self, and create the conditions for profound experiences akin to enlightenment experiences. Since these questions follow the model of Philosophical Midwifery it can be called a dialectic. The questions are adapted to meet the needs of the individual in uncovering, understanding and eliminating personal problems. It fulfills the demands of the dialectic in being a method for providing definitions, demonstrations, divisions, and analysis in the quest for understanding the Self.
