Sample text

48 In both forms there is a realization of the historical nature of culture (in its various manifestations) and, therefore, of human psychic functioning. Yet in the first form the emphasis is on psychic functions and processes in contemporary subjects; there is an abstraction of historical variation. In the second form, however, the historic changes in human psychic functioning are investigated and explained on the basis of modifications in cultural conditions and determinations. Cultural psychology as a whole is an interdisciplinary approach, as will be readily understood with the first of its variants: in both forms distinguished here, cultural psychology is in need of collaboration with other disciplines from the social and human sciences.

This cultural psychology that has been mentioned here several times— what exactly is it? Like psychology in general, cultural psychology is a rather broad, heterogeneous enterprise to which many well-known psychologists have made significant contributions. It is important to realize from the onset that cultural psychology is not a psychology entirely different from other kinds of psychology that have developed throughout the discipline’s past; neither is it one of its separate subdisciplines or simply a field of application.

In other words, they deal with the psychoanalytical psychology of religion (category 3) or are applications thereof (category 2). This is not being criticized here, but explicit mention is made of the possibility offered by the psychoanalytical theoretical framework to attempt empirical research in religious studies. In many respects, psychoanalysis coincides with cultural psychological perspectives. The formation of that which will later be designated the “subject” was already conceived by Freud as dependent on culture, dependent on that which is not-me.
