Lots to look-up in Thomas Teo’s Encyclopedia of Critical Psychology


Congratulations to Thomas Teo on the release of the Encyclopedia of Critical Psychology, for which he served as editor. The massive (2400 pages) anthology published by Springer Reference is “the first reference work in English that comprehensively looks at psychological topics from critical as well as international points of view.”

Teo, who is a professor at Toronto’s York University and internationally respected for his work in the history and philosophy of psychology, invited critical psychologists— from humanists to postmodernists, from Marxists and feminists to post-colonialists—to write the 1000 entries that appear in the Encyclopedia.

Lois Holzman was among the contributors, with entries for Social Therapy, The Zone of Emotional Development, Postmodern Marxism, and Performative Psychology. 

Critical psychology is still rarely taught in the United States.
