Psychology and social theory on ideology
Journal/Book: Theor Psychol. 1999; 9: 2455 Teller Rd, Thousand Oaks, CA 91320, USA. Sage Publications Inc. 393-398.
Abstract: The articles in the present issue of Theory & Psychology, from different theoretical positions and with somewhat varying goals in view, consider the means and consequences of cross-fertilization between psychology and Marxist theory. In this commentary the nodes of communicating these issues across disciplinary boundaries are focused on, and some cross-fertilization is wished for. Of the topics in the articles, the discussions on false consciousness and repression, respectively, are highlighted as of particular interest for psychologists. Finally, parallels are drawn with attempts at integrating feminist theory send psychology.
