Description - Discursive Psychology in Practice by Rom Harre
Many diverse streams of thought have come together in an international movement to reject the traditional view that a "scientific" psychology must rely on an experimental methodology. Underpinning this movement is the principle that the main characteristics of human life are best understood as produced through discourse. This "discursive" psychology has found adherents across the range of psychological disciplines and has ushered in a revised understanding of the subject. This text shows how to put these theoretical and methodological insights to work in the investigation of concrete problems in psychology. A range of traditional psychological topics are examined, from decision-making, memory and attributions to emotions, learning and the self.
