9780415455800: Putting Psychology in its Place, 3rd Edition: Critical Historical Perspectives

The third edition of Putting Psychology In Its Place builds on the previous two editions, introducing the history of Psychology and placing the discipline within a historical context. It aims both to answer and raise questions about the role of Psychology in modern society, by critically examining issues such as how Psychology developed, why psychoanalysis had such an impact and how the discipline has changed to deal with contemporary social issues such as religion, race and gender.

This new third edition contains two completely new chapters: "Emotion: The Problem or the Whole Point?" and "Funding and Institutional Factors." An expanded epilogue has also been added which incorporates a discussion of the conceptual issues raised in the book and the volume now corresponds with the new BPS requirements for undergraduate courses. Other chapters, including those on Psychology and the Brain, Social Psychology and the Psychology of Madness, as well as those on gender, religion and race, have been substantially revised.

Putting Psychology In Its Place is imaginatively written and accessible to all. It is an invaluable introductory text for undergraduate students of the history of Psychology and will also appeal to postgraduates, academics and anyone interested in Psychology or the history of science.

About the Author:

Graham Richards recently retired from his posts as Director of the British Psychological Society’s History of Psychology Centre and Professor of History of Psychology at Staffordshire University. His previous publications include Psychology: The Key Concepts (2008), ‘Race’, Racism and Psychology: Towards a Reflexive History (1997) and On Psychological Language (1989), all published by Routledge.

Review:

"I cannot think of anyone better placed than Graham Richards to write a comprehensive and critical account of the history of psychology. I found this book extremely readable, informative and much more interesting than the average textbook." – Trevor Butt, Emeritus Reader in Psychology, University of Huddersfield, UK 

"This text whips the reader through a vast array of psychological theories and ideas whilst adding thoughtful comment and a quizzical perspective. Not all readers will agree with the author but I challenge them not to have a fruitful debate as a consequence." - Tom Dickins, School of Psychology, University of East London, UK

"This text illustrates in exemplary fashion how history can open up debate in the most important areas of psychology. Rather than getting weighed down with historical detail, Richards invariably identifies the ‘big issues’ that arise from considering an area’s history and while readers may not always agree with his verdicts, they will find it difficult not to engage with his views." – Alan Collins, Department of Psychology, University of Lancaster, UK
