Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(1), 6–7. Reviews the book, Psychology, Mon Amour: A Countertext by Klaus F. Riegel (see record 1979-12212-000). Riegel completed this manuscript very shortly before he died of cancer, and he intended the volume to be used in introductory or advanced undergraduate psychology courses. Whether because of his illness or despite it, he worked with a kind of fever at the task of developing dialectical psychology. The present volume should be looked at as a statement of his reach. It is broad, often declarative, often incomplete, and intended to provoke the student. He attempts to present a constructive alternative, the study of dialogues, in which forms of communication between transacting actors are described. He presents a typology of epistemologies in which he emphasizes that there are many paths to knowledge and that these cannot be arrayed in a neat ontological order.
