Psychology's Interpretive Turn by Barbara S. Held

Book Description

The author skillfully crafts the argument that any philosophy of psychology that in principle precludes the possibility of objective psychological knowledge and truth also undermines an agency founded on rational interpretive grounds. An especially timely critique, as concerns about psychology's fragmentation mount and attempts at unification proliferate.

Books By Author Barbara S. Held

Rational Intuition by Barbara S. Held Rational Intuition, Hardback (August 2014)

Rational Intuition explores the concept of intuition as it relates to rationality through mediums of history, philosophy, cognitive science, and psychology.

Back to Reality by Barbara S. Held Back to Reality, Hardback (September 1995)

The author critiques postmodern/narrative theory, with its underlying antirealist/constructivist philosophy that the knower makes rather than discovers reality. As an alternative, she introduces readers to the integrative/eclective therapy movement and proposes "modest realism."
