Increasingly there have been more and more challenges to received notions of psychological thought and practice. No longer satisfied with old-fashioned positivist approaches, psychologists are following other social sciences in their critiques and methods. 'Psychology, society and Subjectivity' traces the history and development of German critical psychology. Its author, Charles Tolman, charts the initial dissent from mainstream psychology in the late 1960s, to the reconstruction of a psychology that is truly for people, not simply one about people. Drawing on the work of leading figures such as Klaus Holzkamp, Psychology, Society and Subjectivity will need to be read by anyone keen to make psychology relevant without sacrificing its rigour.
