Description : Psychology in Contemporary China focuses on the advancement of psychology in China and the different areas to which this field is applied. The book proceeds by outlining the evolution, nature, and characteristics of Chinese psychology. The text then points out that studies on this discipline is generally difficult, because of the lack of publication of resources in English. The process of learning this field is often done through visitations, with specialists going to China to conduct research and lectures. The text investigates the evolution of psychology in China, as well as its progress through education. The relationship of this discipline with political and social concerns is highlighted, and the progress of this field in universities in China is emphasized. The practice of psychology in China is somewhat limited. This lack is expressed by the fact that psychologists avoid questions that have political content. An examination of the attitudes of Chinese is also presented, and their views on individuality, self-criticism, violence, child-rearing, religion, and modernization are discussed. The book is of great importance for scholars and readers who research on the evolution, growth, and contributions of psychology to society.

Description : The depth, intensity, and long-standing nature of the disagreements between differing schools of social thought renders more critical than ever the treatment of dialectical reasoning and its relationship to the social sciences. The nature of these disagreements are deeply rooted in fundamentally differing beliefs regarding, among many things: (1) the nature of man, (2) the role of theory versus data in constructing social theories, (3) the place and function of values versus facts in inquiry, etc. It has become more and more apparent that such fundamental differences cannot be resolved by surface appeals to rationality or to consensus. Such for it is precisely the definitions of appeals are doomed to failure 'rationality' and 'consensus' that are at odds. That is, different schools not only have different definitions of rationality and consensus but different notions regarding their place and function within a total system of inquiry. A dialectical treatment of conflicts is called for because such conflicts demand a method which is capable of recognizing first of all how deep they lie. Secondly, a method is demanded which is capable of appreciating that the various sides of the conflict fundamentally depend on one another for their very existence; they depend, in other words, on one another not 'in spite of' their opposition but precisely 'because of' it.
