Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 977. Josef Brozek responds to H. P. David's review (see record 2006-06391-025) of Brozek's book, Psychology in Czechoslovakia: Background, bibliographies, current topics, and perspectives for the future (1977). The reviewer complains that the monograph manages to miss much of the vibrancy that characterizes segments of psychology in Czechoslovakia and feels that the importance of published political polemics may have been overemphasized. It is a pity that the reviewer did not specify the segments that were overlooked. Each approach to the subject has, indeed, its limitations. Brozek chose recent conferences and symposia as criteria of vitality and visibility of various fields of specialization within psychology in Czechoslovakia. Ideology is an integral part of the scene and cannot be left out of any objective account. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
