Interpretation of psychology within socio-cultural interrelations
Martinsone, Kristina Ernestovna
Karpova, Ariya Karlovna
The authors draw attention to the current discussions about diversity, polyphony, incompleteness, elusiveness, the openness of being in the context of postmodernism and holistic outlook, calling for reflection on the situation in modern psychology. The authors pay attention to the fact that if a psychologist well-verse in the history, he knows clearly about problems in modern science – understanding of history allows to see the roots of these problems and ways of their solution. Psychology includes various stages of development, which can deeply understand only plunging at a particular time and space – interpretation of history is made in the socio-cultural approach. Also prerequisites for the formation of psychology as an independent science are considered, the most important (but not single) the trends that influenced the process of formation of psychology are marked.
