Brings together luminaries in the field to address the internationalizing of psychology, each raising core issues concerning what an international perspective can contribute to the history of psychology. This book illuminates how what we have been missing may change our views of the nature of psychology and its history.
While the United States was dominant in the development of psychology for much of the twentieth century, other countries have experienced significant growth in this area since the end of World War II. The percentage of those in the discipline who live and work in the United States has been growing smaller, and it is now impossible to completely understand the field if developments in psychology outside of the United States are ignored. "Internationalizing the History of Psychology" brings together luminaries in the field from around the world to address the internationalizing of psychology, each raising core issues concerning what an international perspective can contribute to the history of psychology and to our understanding of psychology as a whole. For too long, much of what we have taken to be the history of psychology has actually been the history of American psychology. This volume, ideal for student use and for those in the field, illuminates how what we have been missing may change our views of the nature of psychology and its history.
