These are post-Foucauldian times we live in


I have just finished reading Dimitris Papadopoulos's wonderful editorial introduction to Critical Psychology 12 - Psychology and the poltitical. Papadopoulos claims that psychology is "no longer concerned with the calibration and management of the individual", but rather aims to "dissect and dissolve individuality". I'm not really sure if he is right, but he constructs a very plausible, richly illustrated, argument to show that "these are post-Foucauldian times we live in". Highly recommended.

Hi

I'm a postgrad psych student at Fort Hare. I've just found your excellent blog (don't know why it took me so long to look for critical psych on the net). I'm really interested in critical psych, narrative psych, feminism and cyber psychology. I've been looking for a discussion forum that deals with these (failing that, I'm going to start one!). If you know of one, I'd be very grateful if you'd pass the knowledge on.

P.S. The book looks interesting, will check it out if I get a chance
