Miller Mair had a key role in the establishment of Personal Construct Psychology in Britain. He also ran a busy clinical psychology department for more than 20 years. Another Way of Knowing's underlying structure is of an autobiography - one which is both 'intellectual' and 'personal', the two modes inevitably intertwined. His psychotherapeutic thinking grew a long way out from its PCP foundation, though it stayed deeply rooted in it. But Miller's supple and questing sensibility, seemingly there from the start but powerfully validated by George Kelly's work, reached out towards much wider horizons than those of psychology and psychotherapy. There is much in this book, implicitly or explicitly, about politics, science and scientism, spirituality, the arts, the human condition in general. It is also a book about writing the book, and the often anguished struggle Miller had with it.
