The ebook; Psychological Studies of Science and Technology; (PDF) provides a significant contribution to scholarship on the psychology of science and the psychology of technology by revealing a range of theory and research distinguished as psychological studies of science and technology. Science and technology are core to almost all domains of human activity; for which reason they are the emphasis of subdisciplines such as philosophy of science; sociology of knowledge; philosophy of technology; and history of science and technology. Till now; psychology has been marginal in this space and restricted to relatively narrow epistemological orientations. By openly embracing pluralism and an international approach; this book provides new perspectives and directions for psychological contributions.

The ebook brings leading theorists and researchers from around the world at one place and spans scholarship across a variety of traditions that include theoretical psychology; feminist psychology; critical psychology; and social constructionist approaches. Following a historical and conceptual introduction; the collection is split into three sections: Scoping a New Psychology of Science and Technology; Applying Psychological Concepts to the Study of Science and Technology; and Critical Perspectives on Psychology as a Science. The ebook will hook interdisciplinary scholars who work in the space of Science and Technology Studies and psychologists interested in the varied human aspects of science and technology
