Overall Pscyhology for the Third Millennium: integrating cultural and neuroscience perspectives, in line with its aims, presents a less dualistic and more holistic and hybrid form of psychology....in part two the book comes into its own and the chapters present distinct topics and empirical examples, which are extremely useful for communicating the theoretical underpinnings to undergraduate students -

With this important new book, we finally have a psychology that is adequate to its subject matter: Human beings as acting persons! Every psychologist, and every student of psychology, should read it and prepare for the third millennium.

In Psychology for the Third Millennium, Harré and Moghaddam provide a rich integration of neurological, cultural, and individual levels of analysis in psychology - the human actor as a biological organism, a social being, and a moral agent. Compelling reading!

This book presents a new scientific basis for psychology, based upon the integration of cutting-edge scholarship in two areas often seen as wholly opposed to each other: neuroscience, and cultural and discursive psychologies. The concepts and methods necessary to enable this integration are clearly explained at the outset, and the benefits of this new approach are then illustrated with respect to a range of relevant psychological topics. For the most part, psychology is riven by a series of dualisms (e.g. between mind and body, individual and society) that have fostered inadequate methods and helped prevent its development into a science that is adequate to its unique subject matter. This exciting book presents a basis for this kind of mature psychology in a way that will be wholly accessible to students

Finally, a textbook for an alternative psychology, deeply rooted in the tradition of discursive and cultural psychology while simultaneously committed to recent developments in the neurosciences. It is both timely and welcome for those who have long sought to go beyond the received traditions in psychology

Excellent, great use of current thinking to advance the profession.
We have a subject with this name....our students would be delighted knowing abut this guide or book
This books gives the course on cultural psychology a bridge over to neuroscience and provides an interesting starting point of discussion for the future of psychology.
A useful text to challenging old divisions in psychology and encouraging students (and others!) to think outside the box.
Very interesting to read book with new vision of psychology. It could be supplementary for my undergraduate students.
This is a fascinating book, which gives hope for the future of psychology and a much needed direction for social researchers. By far the best book I've read in a good while.
I will recommend to third year studies undertaking social constructionist and discursive projects and masters level students.
I haven't found it more informative that the author's previous publications, already on the reading list.
This book explores some of the main issues relevant to contemporary Psychology and is a thought-provoking read.
The book is written at a level not suitable for the student group. It is more suitable for post graduate students.
