Indigenous Psychologies : A Special Issue of the International Journal of Psychology Paperback

Edited by Carl Martin Allwood, John Berry

Part of the Special Issues of the International Journal of Psychology series

Description

Indigenous psychologies are attempts to portray the concepts, and to present the evidence, about human behaviour and experience from a point of view within the cultural traditions of the group.

It takes a position that distances itself from a uniform (usually Western) psychology, and explores human psychological variation in its own cultural contexts.

Indigenous psychologies provide important alternatives to the existing unitary psychology, but in their very diversity we may discover variations and communalities that could provide the basic material to create a more truly pan-human psychology.

Thus, diversity in psychological knowledge may allow for the eventual development of a more representative psychology that will likely be very different from current conceptions of human behaviour.
