A fresh look at the history of psychology placed in its social,
political, and cultural contexts

A History of Modern Psychology in Context presents the
history of modern psychology in the richness of its many contexts.
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 temporal, social, political, and cultural 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.


The authors complicate the notion of who is at the center and
who is at the periphery of the history of psychology by bringing in
actors and events that are often overlooked in traditional
accounts. They also highlight how the reflexive nature of
Psychology?a science produced both by and about
humans?accords history a prominent place in understanding the
discipline and the theories it generates.


Throughout the text, the authors show how Psychology and
psychologists are embedded in cultures that indelibly shape how the
discipline is defined and practiced, the kind of knowledge it
creates, and how this knowledge is received. The text also moves
beyond an exclusive focus on the development of North American and
European psychologies to explore the development of psychologies in
other indigenous contexts, especially from the mid-20th-century
onward.
