Books by F.M. Alexander
Alexander wrote four books that are worth of study for anyone seriously interested in the origins and processes of the Technique.
The Use of the Self
This is recommend for a first-time reader of Alexander. In it he describes the journey of discovery that led to the Alexander technique, from his initial problem with hoarseness of voice through to his realisation of having discovered something that went far beyond just solving his own problem.
Here is a short excerpt from “The Use of the Self”
When I began my investigation, I, in common with most people, conceived of “body” and “mind” as separate parts of the same organism, and consequently believed that human ills, difficulties and shortcomings could be classified as either “mental” or “physical” and dealt with on specifically “mental” or specifically “physical” lines. My practical experiences, however, led me to abandon this point of view and readers of my books will be aware that the technique described in them is based on the opposite conception, namely, that it is impossible to separate “mental” and “physical” processes in any form of human activity.
The other three books are:
The Universal Constant in Living
Conscious Constructive Control of the Individual
Mans Supreme Inheritance
