The Master programme Reflecting on Psychology teaches students to put their skills and knowledge in a broader context.
Using perspectives from Philosophy of Science, Science and Technology Studies (STS), Sociology, Anthropology and Cultural Studies, this master encourages students to open up the black box of Psychology, and to explore its relations with other parts of science and society.
Questions that might be discussed or explored include: How should psychology be positioned between the humanities, life sciences and natural sciences? How do we weigh the evidence coming from such diverse sources as experiments, case histories or introspection? What is the value of MRI-scans in moral and scientific debates? Where should we draw the line between treatment and enhancement when it comes to psychotropic drugs? How do media creations of autism in novels and films influence the clinical reality of autism?
