What is Gestalt Psychology?
Gestalt Psychology is a school of thought which speculates that the human brain tends to organise visual elements as a ‘unified whole’ rather than merely a gathering of individual components. When we try to make sense of the world, we do not simply focus on each small element; instead we tend to look at those as a part of a bigger, more complex system. ‘Gestalt’ is a word of German origin which roughly translates to ‘an organised whole’ or a ‘configuration’.
