Description - Psychology and Postmodernism by Steinar Kvale

This text explores the basis for a postmodern psychology. Contributors examine key themes within postmodernist/post-structuralist theory such as: the nature of knowledge, the central role of language, concept of self. Their implications for reworking psychology in the "postmodern world" are explored. Critique as well as support for postmodern perspectives is presented - from feminist critique of postmodern "deconstruction" to argument about usefulness of clear distinctions between a "modern" and "postmodern" psychology.
