≪Organizer Abstract≫
History of psychology and critical psychology can build a mutually constructive relationship to understand psychology and its multiple origins embedded in social, economic, political, and cultural contexts of nations and regions of a time, and to comprehend what psychologists do as historically situated at the intersections of interests, influences, and powers that a variety of actors both internal and external to the discipline of psychology exert intentionally and unintentionally. In this symposium, we will explore possibilities of a new history and critique of psychology from the perspectives of philosophical psychology, feminist psychology, and critical historiography of psychology based on investigative practices in East Asia, the English-speaking world, and Latin America. We will discuss what can be done to make psychology and applications of psychology more suitable to produce change in the real world.
