This course examines the historical and philosophical context of psychology. While attention is paid to some of the more ancient philosophical themes anticipating psychology, the focus is predominantly on a critique of modern scientific and applied psychology to expose its social-relational aspects. Current poststructuralist, social constructionist and historical critiques are integrated with voices from the history of science and modern philosophy in order to improve our understanding of where psychology is today. Meets 6/6 - 7/18/11.
