Discourse and Psychology by Jonathan Potter

Book Description

Bringing together classic and contemporary papers at the boundaries of the fields of discourse studies and psychology, it includes work from the fields of discourse analysis, discursive psychology, ethnomethodology and conversation analysis that is focused on the way psychological issues and topics feature in human discourse. The studies included have been chosen because of their position as key articles and chapters in the development of the emerging field of Discourse and Psychology and because of their influence on subsequent work. The volumes are organized to highlight different strands of work. Volume 1: Theory and Method includes a range of articles that have been foundational in one way or another and which illuminate the theoretical and analytic currents that were woven together in the early years of this field. It also includes a set of papers that outline methods of research in this field, cover debates over method, and illustrate the implications for studying psychological methods as forms of situated discourse. Volume 2: Discourse and Social Psychology focuses on work that has contributed to key issues in social psychology. It includes work on the basic fields of categories and attitudes as well as work that tackles broader issues of race, gender and ideology. Volume 3: Discursive Psychology brings together work that has addressed core issues in psychology such as memory and attribution, development and education, the nature of mind and knowledge, and emotion and perception. Each volume is organized thematically for extra clarity and is introduced by an introductory essay by the editor who is himself a key figure in the field. The overall effect is to provide a synoptic integrated account of this exciting and rapidly developing field.
