About this title:

Synopsis:

M. Brewster Smith saw himself, and has long been seen by others, as a social psychologist in the tradition of Gordon Allport, Gardner and Lois Murphy, Kurt Lewin, and Muzafer Sherif. Smith’s unique ability has been to contribute to the emergence of personality as a differentiated academic field and at the same time to maintain strong interdisciplinary ties to a variety of fields from sociology to philosophy.

Because of these wide-ranging concerns, the major statements of Brewster Smith have appeared in diverse places. Values, Self and Society unifies his work on values and selfhood, humanistic psychology and the social sciences, and humanism and social issues. Smith was a major thinker at home in the details of psychology and in the broad areas of public interest and social policy.

In this volume, Smith discusses major issues in terms of the political processes involved in the public interest. These range from the issue of advocacy within social research to conceptualizing anew familiar issues within psychology. For the generalist interested in the broader meanings of social psychology to the specialist aiming to recapture the big issues with which the field was once identified, this volume is a must-read.

About the Author:

M. Brewster Smith (1919–2012) was professor emeritus of psychology at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He was the president of the Joint Commission on Mental Illness and Health, president of the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues, and president of the American Psychological Association.

Book Depository hard to find
(London, United Kingdom)

Book Description Taylor & Francis Inc, United Kingdom, 1991. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. In a tough opening statement, M. Brewster Smith outlines his own life course and contrasts it with the agenda of social psychology in the present professional moment. "Today's journals, textbooks, and conferences represent a vigorous but narrow scientific specialty in psychology, the practitioners of which are more closely focused on agendas that are primarily and often only intelligible within the subdiscipline than was the case when I formed my identity as a psychologist." In contrast, Smith sees himself, and has long been seen by others, as a social psychologist in the tradition of Gordon Allport, Gardner and Lois Murphy, Kurt Lewin, and Muzafer Sherif. Smith's unique ability has been to contribute to the emergence of personality as a differentiated academic field and at the same time maintain strong interdisciplinary ties to a variety of fields ranging from sociology to philosophy. In recent years, such concerns have made the author a central figure in the development of Humanistic Psychology as a part of the American Psychological Association. Because of these wide ranging concerns, the major statements of Brewster Smith have appeared in diverse places. Here, brought into a unified and uniform frame of reference, one has his work on values and selfhood, humanistic psychology and the social sciences, and humanism and social issues brought together for the first time. The picture is of a major thinker who is at home in the details of psychology and in the broad areas of public interest and social policy. Brewster Smith discusses major issues in terms of the political processes involved in the public interest. These range from the issue of advocacy within social research to conceptualizing anew familiar issues within psychology. For the generalist interested in the broader meanings of social psychology to the specialist aiming to recapture the big issues with which the field was once identified, this is a must volume.
