Psychology as Social Science

Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Professor Nikolas Rose
Chair: Dr Derek Hook

Recorded on 5 February 2007 in Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House.

This talk considers what it means to approach psychology as a 'social' science in a specific sense - that is to say it sketches out an approach to the analysis of the part that psychology - its languages, techniques, forms of expertise, self-technologies - played across the twentieth century in the development of social-welfare rationalities and technologies of government.
