Zur Problematik adäquater Fachverständnisse und adäquater Methoden.

Zurück zum Heft: Zeitschrift für Kulturphilosophie 2011/2: Kulturalisierung



Taking psychology and its attempt to deal scientifically with the meaning of culture as an example, this article outlines the meaning of various historiographic narratives of disciplinary self-perception with regard to tensions between the natural and cultural sciences. The thesis postulates that these self-images are of psychological, especially cultural-psychological, importance. Only a psychology that includes aspects of the cultural sciences is able to deal with this vital aspect of the broader field.
