CFU 13


Cultural Theory

Through an introduction to classical and contemporary cultural theory(s), students are introduced to theoretical perspectives outside psychology that allow the discussion of psychological processes to be embedded in sociocultural contexts. Through the examination of cultural-theoretical content – such as the effect of historical events (and ultimately crimes) on one’s own self (for example, in Amery’s Guilt and Atonement) – the primordiality, i.e., the fundamental importance of culture for the thinking, (speech) action and feeling of individuals is to be critically discussed.
