View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

This unprecendented volume assembles the writing of several Asian scholars who present distinctive contributions to psychology concerning the Asian continent, and the Philippines. Drawing freely from the Eastern intellectual traditions, this volume is organized around several themes: the distinctive characteristics of Asian societies; Asian contributions to psychology; and the need for relevant psychological research including indigenous modes of human behavior.

About the Author:

ANAND C. PARANJPE has been teaching psychology at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada. Dr. Paranjpe is the author of In Search of Identity (Wiley, 1975) and Theoretical Psychology: The Meeting of East and West (Plenum, 1984).

DAVID Y.J. HO is Reader in the Department of Psychology at the Univeristy of Hong Kong. Dr. Ho is committed to the development of an Asian psychology with indigenous roots in the cultural heritage of Asia.

ROBERT W. RIEBER is a Professor of Psychology at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. He is the founder and editor of the Journal of Psycholinguistic Research and of Advances in Forensic Psychology, an annual publication.

Review:

"This collection, born of discussions at an international cross-cultural meeting, reflects the contributors' intense commitments to indigenous Asian psychologies. Current trends in the research are well reflected here: classical theories and methods, and contemporary folk cultures and practices. The collection lacks a contribution reflecting psychological traditions and practices of Japan; otherwise, it is widely representative, both historically and geographically. Particularly useful for beginning students is Anand C. Pananjpe's introductory chapter, a sweeping overview of Western psychological thought, cross-cultural psychology, and East-West philosophical and psychological commonalities and contrasts. The contention that indigenous psychologies of Asia have significant potential for contributions to a universal psychology is supported by theoretical approaches and by descriptive presentations of contemporary behavior. This welcome addition to the endogenous literature helps balance the Western dominance of cross-cultural psychology. For college and university collections."-Choice
