Dr. Chris Aanstoos, Professor of Psychology, will present “The Human Science’s Identity Crisis: Who are we really?"
Various social sciences emerged as independent disciplines in the 19th century, establishing their conceptual foundations by taking the model of "science" from the already existing natural sciences. In doing so, they overlooked what was distinctive about the "human" nature of their own unique subject matter, resulting in an "identity crisis" that continues to undermine progress to this day. During the late 20th century, much theoretical work was begun to revision the social sciences as specifically "human sciences" with their own distinctive approaches and methods. My professional life has been to advance this project, through my teaching and research, and my sabbatical was devoted to authoring a book on these developments. My presentation will overview that work and the promise it holds for us in the future.
Please see the attached flyer for further details. Coffee and snacks will be served. We look forward to your attendance.
