Sigmund Koch, best known for his critical analyses of psychological theory and practice, drew his pivotal insight and abiding concern from his conviction that the failure to sustain and advance human-centered inquiry and understanding (as opposed to rule-governed methodology and conclusions) is the root pathology of modern life. Inspired by the work of selected colleagues, creative artists, and disciplined connoisseurs of language (and, hence, of human sensibility), Koch held out hope for a return to human agency, both inside and outside the domains of psychological study and application.
