Psychology After the Crisis: Scientific Paradigms and Political Debate
Ian Parker has been a leading light in the fields of critical and discursive psychology for over 25 years. The Psychology After Critique series brings together for the first time his most important papers. Each volume in the series has been prepared by Ian Parker, features a newly written introduction and presents a focused overview of a key topic area.
Psychology After the Crisis is the first volume in the series and addresses three important questions:
- What was the crisis in psychology and why does it continue now?
- How did debates regarding the traditional ‘laboratory experiment’ paradigm in psychology set the scene for discourse analysis?
- Why are these paradigm debates now crucial for understanding contemporary critical psychology?
