ARCP 16: Kritische Psychologie (2019)

Annual Review of Critical Psychology Volume 16

Special Issue: Kritische Psychologie

Edited by Athanasios Marvakis, Sertan Batur, Shose Kessi, Desmond Painter, Ernst Schraube, Eva Strohm Bowler and Sofia Triliva

 

Within the polyphony of Critical Psychologies, Kritische Psychologie represents a substantial and distinct voice. It has its origins in Germany, especially at the Free University Berlin, and developed over the years to a tradition of thought flourishing at various places around the world. This special issue of the Annual Review of Critical Psychology brings together current research of Kritische Psychologie as well as work inspired by or developed in response to it. Scholars are presenting in 63 articles how they are working in and with this tradition of thought. They describe, how they explore the problems people are confronted with in their everyday world, they share how they rethink and expand psychological theory, methodology and empirical research, and they are discussing, applying, criticizing, elaborating, linking or comparing Kritische Psychologie with other theoretical and geopolitical approaches, often going beyond disciplinary boundaries of psychology.
