Available / dispatched within 1 - 4 weeks
History of Psychology in the Black Experience Perspectives uniquely approaches the history of human psychology by weaving together the psychological elements of ancient Egyptians. The psychological contents of the medieval and contemporary sub-Saharan Africans and the psychological experiences of Diasporan Africans were woven into the annals and systems of human psychology. The text reviews the manner by which the early Europeans took ideas and institutions from the ancient Blacks and how they changed these ideas and principles to create a psychology in their own perspectives. The book explores the psychological ideas and achievements of medieval Africans, presents the historical contributions of African-centered psychology or "psycho-Africalysis" in a unique manner, and outlines the collaborations of the continuous work, research and developments among continental African, Diasporan African and good faith Euro-American psychologists. The book is ideal for courses in the history and systems of psychology, African continental psychology, African American psychology, and the psychology of Black experience.
