Psychology and Postmodernism by Steinar Kvale

Book Description

This groundbreaking book is the first to explore the implications of postmodernist ideas for psychology. It examines central themes of postmodernism as they relate to psychology - for example, the nature of the self, locally situated rather than universal knowledge and the pivotal role of language in social life. The contributors outline the new possibilities for psychology, setting theoretical reformulations alongside implications for psychological practice and method. The book presents critique as well as support for postmodern perspectives, from feminist critique of postmodern 'deconstruction' to argument with the usefulness of sharp distinctions between a 'modern' and 'postmodern' psychology.
