Social Psychology: A Critical Agenda

Rex Stainton Rogers, Paul Stenner, Kate Gleeson & Wendy Stainton Rogers

The convulsions that have beset social psychology in the last two decades have at last found a resolution in this book. The authors have managed to bring together the narratological and discursive approaches into a powerful critical synthesis, that at the same time is presented in a highly entertaining manner. Perhaps, with this book, social psychology will at last cast off the stultifying scientism of the past and begin to emerge as a mature and useful discipline.’
Rom Harré, University of Oxford, and University of Georgetown

This is a new textbook in social psychology which deliberately adopts a critical, unconventional approach.

Until recently social psychology seemed to have escaped relatively lightly from the climate of critical questioning which has characterized other areas of the social sciences. But this has changed: it is now possible to identify a clear forum of challenge, which could be described as ‘critical social Psychology.

Social Psychology draws upon and consolidates this new current of thinking while at the same time providing a wide-ranging and critical introduction to the field. It introduces students to the concepts, methods and debates in social psychology, but does so in a way that is questioning rather than dogmatic. The overall argument of the book is that social psychology has not uncovered the origins of social behaviour and experience but has ‘brought them into being’ by virtue of the theories and narratives constructed by it.

Social Psychology is a textbook with a difference, introducing the central issues and concerns of social psychology within a framework of critical scrutiny. It is suitable for first- and second-year undergraduates in Psychology and social psychology.
