Example text

One can think of examples of individuals in the history of American psychology for whom the affiliation with this particular discipline was not particularly salient. Dewey, Judd, and the older James come to mind. But 2 • Psychological Objects, Practice, and History 37 it is significant that such examples are most likely to be found early in the history of the discipline. On the whole, and increasingly so as the discipline developed, the disciplinary affiliation seems to have been extremely important for American psychologists, so that disciplinary interests dominated their professional lives.

Again, this does not mean that these objects have no links with objects outside disciplinary psychological discourse, but the natur~ of these links cannot be discovered by the methods of psychological investigation that necessarily constitute their own objects and none other. Does this analysis imply a kind of disciplinary solipsism? Certainly there is an unmistakable tendency in that direction. It is a tendency that is greatly strengthened by the homogenization of psychological methods and by demands for the uniformity of permissible categories of psychological discourse.

Psychological investigators and subjects whose interests differ, and whose activity in the research situation is governed by different norms and traditions, will generate different kinds of knowledge products. Because of the 20 Kurt Danziger intimate link between theories and empirical domains investigators with divergent interests and activity norms will also produce different theories. This embeddedness of theories in certain patterns of collective activity and their empirical products sets limits to what can be achieved by an evaluation of theories against empirical data.
