The ebook, Psychological Studies of Science and Technology, (PDF) provides a significant contribution to scholarship on the psychology of science and the psychology of technology by revealing a range of theory and research distinguished as psychological studies of science and technology. Science and technology are core to almost all domains of human activity, for which reason they are the emphasis of subdisciplines such as philosophy of science, sociology of knowledge, philosophy of technology, and history of science and technology. Till now, psychology has been marginal in this space and restricted to relatively narrow epistemological orientations. By openly embracing pluralism and an international approach, this book provides new perspectives and directions for psychological contributions.
The ebook brings leading theorists and researchers from around the world at one place and spans scholarship across a variety of traditions that include theoretical psychology, feminist psychology, critical psychology, and social constructionist approaches. Following a historical and conceptual introduction, the collection is split into three sections: Scoping a New Psychology of Science and Technology, Applying Psychological Concepts to the Study of Science and Technology, and Critical Perspectives on Psychology as a Science. The ebook will hook interdisciplinary scholars who work in the space of Science and Technology Studies and psychologists interested in the varied human aspects of science and technology
