Naming the Mind
How Psychology Found Its Language
- Kurt Danziger - York University, Toronto, Canada
Philosophical Psychology | Psychology (General)
This fascinating work is a persuasive explanation of how modern psychology found its language. Kurt Danziger develops an account that goes beyond the taken-for-granted quality of psychological discourse to offer a profound and broad-ranging analysis of the recent evolution of the concepts and categories on which it depends. Danziger explores this process and shows how its consequences depend on cultural contexts and the history of an emergent discipline.
