Field Theory vs Force Field Theory[edit]

I don't recognize "Force" as being part of Lewin's Field Theory. Also the main article on this subject is called Force Field Theory. Moreover there is no entyr point on the disambiguation page for Field Theory pointing to Lewin's Field Theory. I'm no expert at psychology so I leave it for others to do any corrections if necessary. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.234.247.50 (talk) 12:47, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Polish-american?[edit]

Hi! I think he was a german-american, not a polish-american. So it was here in the article till to the Edit of January 13 2012. TomGaribaldi (talk) 10:42, 16 February 2012 (UTC) I (re)changed it now, because he had german and later american, but not polish citicenship. He was born in Posen, what then was part of Germany. As far as I can see he belonged to the german minority in Posen, that lived side by side with polish people in Posen. But he has a german name und spoke the german language als his mother tounge. Also the family moved inside germany while he was a child.TomGaribaldi (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 10:49, 16 February 2012 (UTC).

Citation for 1947 article[edit]

The article twice references 1947 article(s) but does not provide the citation. Anyone know it? Vajrapoppy (talk) 20:05, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

Lewinian spiral[edit]

One of the key concepts in action research, developed by Kurt Lewin, is that of the "spiral" - often referred to as the Lewinian spiral. I've taken the liberty of adding a parenthetic comment about it's being called that.

I haven't included a specific reference - but the expression is very widely used in the literature (as a quick google search for "Lewinian spiral" will reveal). --peter_english (talk) 09:41, 18 June 2014 (UTC)
