About the Authors
  • Critical psychology constitutes a radical critique and reconstruction of scientific psychology from a dialectical and historical-materialistic point of view. Its aim is to provide a firmer foundation than presently exists for a psychology that is methodologically sound, practically relevant and theoretically determinate. This book was first published in 1991.
