Sigmund Koch (1917-1996) was one of the 20th century's most penetrating and wide-ranging critics of the scientistic ambitions of psychology. He decried any psychology that attempted to eradic ate the human dimension from the study, scientific and otherwise, of human experience and action. A philosopher and humanist by nature, Koch also sought to change the multifaceted field of psychology by moving it closer to the humanities and arts. The broad scope of essays in text which began as the basis for the eagerly anticipated postscript to Koch's seminal "Psychology: A Study of a Science" reveal his writings to be as fresh and relevant today as ever. Carefully edited by two of Koch's close associates, this collection places psychological and philosophical issues in the context of 20th-century thought and provides intellectual and moral signposts for future travellers in what Koch regarded as the irreducibly rich and human realm of the psychological studies.
