Psychological Humanities

Researchers associated with this cluster work from a range of theoretical positions including phenomenology, psychoanalysis, cultural psychology and developmental theory, all of which have their grounding in the tradition of Psychological Humanities. The aim is to emphasize and disseminate an approach to psychology based on the founding principles of the humanities. This immediately leads to prioritizing humanistic topics such as aesthetics, history, philosophy, and philosophy of science, resulting in a field of interest that focuses on general psychological understandings of the subject; its occurrence and development understood as a synthesis of biological, psychological, and societal elements.

A wide range of qualitative methods is represented in our research, e.g. case studies, field studies, interviews, and observation studies.
