All psychologies are indigenous psychologies: Reflections on psychology in a global era


All psychologies are indigenous psychologies: Reflections on psychology in a global era.

I love this!  Everyone in the psychology field, and really any Western-society focused research science, should be reading this and taking heed.  It’s entirely too easy to think that what we see here generalizes everywhere, but cultures and people are different based on too many other factors.  I would love to work with this author on some research in the future!

  1. Try Rudolf Steiner, if you have a time. He has written a lot about this as well.

    Most intriguing thing is that Steiner often arrives at very similar conculsions in regard to those being propounded by Islam. Compare e.g. “How to ged rid of Sin” with Steiner’s writings about the Michael Age.
