≪Organizer Abstract≫
In this symposium we discuss the relationship between history, critical psychology, theory and practice in an international context, taking several continents into account. We address the different trajectories of critical psychologies in the last decades around the world, the importance of culture in critical thought, and the theoretical, epistemological and methodological underpinnings of psychology. Applying reflexivity and analyses of power, historical and theoretical case studies from Asia, Latin America, North America, Africa and Europe are discussed and consequences for a new history of psychology are debated. Using a temporal standpoint, problems of the relevance of traditional psychology for internationalization movements are debated. Implications for the recognition of various critical approaches in the history of psychology around the world are discussed and suggestions for the future of an international critical psychology that incorporates critical-historical and critical-theoretical ideas are presented.
