This book introduces the groundbreaking work of the German critical psychologist Klaus Holzkamp. In contrast to contemporary psychology's worldlessness, the writings present a concept of psychology based on the individual's relations to the world and open up new perspectives on human subjectivity, agency and the conduct of everyday life.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Klaus Holzkamp is arguably the most important postwar German psychologist who created collaboratively a unique system of psychology. Psychology from the Standpoint of the Subject introduces English-speaking readers to a scientific psychology beyond the mainstream. The book articulates based on excellent editorial work the diversity, complexity, and geniality of Holzkamp's thought.'

Thomas Teo, Professor of Psychology, York University, Toronto, Canada.

'Klaus Holzkamp has developed an integrated conception of psychology from the standpoint of the subject. It is an extraordinarily systematic, powerful and rich framework which may transform our understanding of psychology. The twelve texts in this book give an overview over key concepts and topics in this framework which he expanded, revised, and strengthened throughout his career. His socially situated approach to human subjectivity offers conceptual tools for human subjects to reflect critically on their everyday lives and self-understandings and it combines social critique with a critique of the gaze and practice of psychology.'

Ole Dreier, Professor of Psychology, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
