After over a decade of theoretical writing, it is now possible and timely to evaluate the impact of postmodernism on psychology. This book brings together a group of highly respected contributors to the postmodern debate in psychology. Their chapters reflect on achievements and limitations of attempts to develop postmodern approaches to psychology. The essays are interactive, reflective and the authors are often in active debate. This volume introduces the general reader to such topics as Marxist and feminist psychology, social constructionism and deconstructionism. Postmodern Psychologies is the first book to assess postmodernism's impact on psychology, both within the discipline of psychology and the broader culture.
