Overview

In this volume, prominent American and European scholars from various disciplines illustrate the historical shaping of psychological discourse. They expose the ideological, intellectual, political, economic, and literary forces that enter into the cultural construction of mental life. Exploring emotion, cognition, development, psychotherapy and gender differences, this book not only challenges the reality of the taken-for-granted world of everyday life, but questions the ability of the psychological science to establish historically-independent knowledge of mental process.
