9780745325354: Revolution in Psychology: Alienation to Emancipation

"A radical methodological approach to psychology that is open to social change - in an anti-capitalist, anti-racist and feminist politics." Antonio Negri Psychology is meant to help people cope with the afflictions of modern society. But how useful is it? Ian Parker argues that current psychological practice has become part of the problem, rather than the solution. Ideal for undergraduates, this book deconstructs the discipline to reveal the neoliberal sensitivities that underlie its theory and practice. Psychology focuses on the happiness of 'the individual'. Yet it neglects the fact that the happiness of the individual depends on their social and political surroundings. Ian Parker argues that a new approach to psychology is needed. He offers an alternative vision, outlining how the discipline can be linked to political practice and how it can help people as part of a wider progressive agenda. This groundbreaking book is at the cutting edge of current thinking on the discipline and should be required reading on all psychology courses.

Recensione:

A radical methodological approach to psychology that is open to social change change - in an anti-capitalist, anti-racist and feminist politics. (Antonio Negri)

A remarkable book. A sharply-honed scythe through the dangers of mainstream scientistic psychology as well as through some spiritual, humanistic, 'positive' and discursive alternatives. ... The emperor’s clothes are stripped: psychology in its multiple guises is paraded as an apparatus of social control – the antithesis of a means for struggle and human betterment. (Don Foster, Professor of Psychology, University of Cape Town)

A really necessary book. Ian Parker harvests the insights of the social movements of recent decades and transforms them into a new paradigm, finding a deep connection between psychology and politics. Brimming with ideas, this book shows us how to learn from previous theorists and at the same time make up our own minds. It liberates psychology from the ground up. (Frigga Haug)

This is a very clear and useful critique of the discipline of psychology in its various branches. Definitely to be recommended as an introductory text for anyone trying to connect radical politics and the study of psychology. (Professor John Holloway, Instituto de Ciencias Sociales y Humanidades of the BenemÈrita Universidad Autonoma de Puebla in Mexico)
