Description

More than an academic critique, Performing Psychology offers a new methodology for understanding human life. Arguing that both psychological activity and its study are essentially performance, Neuman and his colleagues expose the myths of mainstream psychology and the limitations of its postmodern challengers.

Reviews

"Performing Psychology: A Postmodern Culture of Mind is a rather unusual hybrid of various strands of critical psychology, including an unusual form of therapy combined with arguments about the nature of performance." -- APA Review of Books
