Re: [xmca] The sociocultural turn in psychology

I've never been very much interested in psychoanalysis (too unscientific for me) but Eli Zaretsky's "Secrets of the Soul" (a history of psychoanalysis) I really enjoyed, lso emphasising psychoanalysis as a product and reflection of the times rather than as a viable theory of mind.

Andy,for the historian in you, Suzanne Kirschner has written another fascinating book on the cultural historical roots of psychoanalysis that is an historical developmental account of how Freud's theory is a continuation of our Western religious heritage. A concrete example of how our "traditions that constitute us as persons" emerge from specific concrete historical circumstances. She has an interesting intellectual background from which to co-author this new book on the sociocultural turn in psychology.
