The journal PSYCHOLOGY IN SOCIETY (PINS) calls for articles for a Special Issue on “African Psychologies for the World.”
The introductory paragraph of the call reads thus:
“Contestations around what is African psychology and how psychologists might better theoretically situate themselves in African realities are not new. In his contribution to the debate, Dawes (1998) contended that “the nature of African psychology should not be determined a priori as different, simply by dint of its location on the African continent in African cultures”. Influenced by Hountondji, Moll (2002) argued that African psychology is both myth and reality. Arguing for a framework for an African-based psychology, Mkhize (2004) said his objection to Western-derived theoretical frameworks in psychology is that while these frameworks have some relevance for African societies, “they cannot be exclusively used to explain human needs across cultures and across time”.
