Abstract

This article is a short exposition of the philosophical underpinnings of psychodrama and group psychotherapy and the inherent difficulties in determining them. The written materials that explain the underlying philosophy of psychodrama are, generally, uncritical in a philosophical sense, of Moreno's ideas. There is little discussion and no apparent general recognition of where these written materials fit within larger philosophical traditions. Arguments as to which philosophical frameworks could be said to underlie psychodrama are presented. This article proposes that the philosophical underpinnings of psychodrama are still revolutionary and inadequately explicated. Aspects of the narrative journey the author experienced while writing this article are included.
