Unscientific psychology: A y approach to understanding human life. Notes that performative psychology is a relatively new approach that presents possibilities for educational innovation. Westport, CT: Praeger. Theses on Feuerbach The German Ideology. Based in the belief that we collectively create our lives through performing (simultaneously being who we are and who we are becoming), performative psychology looks at learning and development through a cultural lens.

Philosopher and psychotherapist Fred Newman and developmental psychologist Lois Holzman challenge psychology's understandings of what a human being is, what mental illness is, and how people develop and learn. They show how these understandings were created, marketed and sold to the American public. Going beyond critique, the authors argue that instead of psychology, what people the world over need is a cultural, performatory approach to human life. Unscientific Psychology is based on the authors' twenty-five year practice of creating such an approach and the network of therapeutic and educational projects that have been built with it.Unscientific Psychology is at once a narrative of the history of philosophy, modern science and psychology, and a critique of psychology's methodology. Arguing that psychology is a pseudoscientific hoax, the authors deconstruct three of its most powerful myths: the myth of the individual; the myth of mental illness; and the myth of development. They tell the story of how these myths were constructed out of age-old philosophical abstractions to create a world and a discourse of psychological objects.Newman and Holzman invite readers to think in new ways about our lives and the world around us. Like similar books that make discoveries in the social sciences accessible and exciting to an educated audience, Unscientific Psychology taps into the desire of readers who are eager to learn what's on the cutting edge of scientific and cultural change.

A good argument for critiquing the quasi scientific approach of contemporary psychology, but it suffers from intense postmodernese language. Ironically, the authors promote Wittegenstein's focus on how "language about language of the type that philosophers speak and write obscures ordinary life." Yet, the book is full of such obscuring language. To quote from the last page, albeit without context, "Emotional states as emotional states are a form of alienation unlike some other alienated, commodified processes in our culture." There is a lot of this rather circular use of words. I finished the book with no picture at all of what their cultural performatory therapeutic practice looks like. This is perhaps the most direct statement of how they work in group: "The social therapy group typically begins (week after week) with group members' placing before us the varied forms of alienation (themselves) that is our emotional life in capitalist culture." No specifics, no examples. After these criticisms I still give the book 3 stars because there are sections on particular views of philosophy that presented interesting non-mainstream ideas, particularly the various discussions of Wittgenstein and Vygotsky. I learned, but finished frustrated.

This is an excellent book that promotes a critical view of psychology. However, the first edition came out in 1996 and this 2006 edition is a simple reprint, with nothing new (not even the preface!) in it.
