Reconstructing the Psychological Subject offers a comprehensive overview of key debates on subjectivity and the subject in psychological theory and practice. In addition to social construction's long engagement with social relations, this volume addresses questions of the body, technology, intersubjectivity, writing, and investigative practices. An international cast of contributors explore the tensions and opposing viewpoints raised by these issues and shows how analyzing the psychological subject interrelates with reforming the practices of psychology. Drawing on perspectives that include feminism, dialogics, poststructuralism, hermeneutics, Lacanian psychoanalysis, and cultural or social studies of science, readers are guided through pivotal debates in the field. Reconstructing the Psychological Subject will be invaluable reading for students and academics in psychology, social constructionism, communication studies, and social studies of science.
