ISTP 2017 : The 17th Biennial Conference of the International Society for Theoretical Psychology
Call For Papers
THE 17TH BIENNIAL CONFERENCE OF THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR THEORETICAL PSYCHOLOGY
"The Ethos of Theorizing"
AUGUST 21-25, 2017
RIKKYO UNIVERSITY, TOKYO, JAPAN
The International Society for Theoretical Psychology welcomes abstract submissions related to the conference theme, The Ethos of Theorizing, and for any topics with a focus on the theoretical aspects of psychology.
We have chosen “The Ethos of Theorizing” as the 2017 conference theme to reflect the ethical dimension of psychology as subject matter and discipline. Theorizing, including our epistemological and ontological concepts, is deeply embedded in ethical and normative considerations. Thus, theorizing in psychology is not just an activity, but a practice that engages theoretical psychologists deeply and calls us to take responsibility for doing “good” theory. This theme invites reflections on our incursions into culture and the aims of our theoretical practice.
Presentations can be made in the following four formats: Symposia, Workshop sessions, Individual presentations, and Posters.
Submission Deadline: January 31st, 2016
Relevant research fields include:
- Cognitive psychology
- Social psychology
- Feminist psychology
- Postcolonial psychology
- Developmental psychology
- Clinical psychology
- Perceptual psychology
- Biological psychology
- Evolutionary psychology
- Philosophy of Science
- Philosophy of Mind
… and more
