Description - A History of Modern Psychology in Context by Wade E. Pickren
In A History of Modern Psychology in Context, the authors resist the traditional storylines of great achievements by eminent people, or schools of thought that rise and fall in the wake of scientific progress. Instead, psychology is portrayed as a network of scientific and professional practices embedded in specific contexts. The narrative is informed by three key concepts?indigenization, reflexivity, and social constructionism?and by the fascinating interplay between disciplinary Psychology and everyday psychology.
