The article explores psychological motives in Leopold Blaustein’s philosophy. Blaustein was educated in Lvov, Freiburg im Breisgau and Berlin. In his original explorations, he attempted to connect a phenomenological perspective with descriptive psychology. As trained by Twardowski, he took over some motives of understanding the method of philosophy (psychology), its objectives and aims. The author situates Blaustein also in a dialogue with Stumpf and next to the context of Dilthey’s humanistic psychology is examined. Finally, the article explores the influences of Gestalt psychology on Blaustein. The ultimate thesis of the article is that Blaustein’s method can be grasped as a phenomenologically oriented descriptive psychology.

gestalt- theoretical framework for the analysis. Serena Cattaruzza and Walter Coppola move from Christian von Ehrenfeld’s observations on Gestalt qualities, focusing on his example of melody. They stress the comparison between auditory and visual fields, emphasizing the difference between temporal and spatial Gestalt forms. Based on broad empirical results, Cattaruzza and Coppola uncover the relevance of dance as a phenomenon that bridges the gap between temporal and spatial Gestalt. Dance is also the topic explored by Irene Candelieri with reference to Franz
