Constructing the Subject: Historical Origins of Psychological Research
The book traces the history of psychological research methodology from the nineteenth century to the emergence of currently favored styles of research. Professor Danziger considers methodology as a kind of social practice rather than being simply a matter of technique. Therefore his historical analysis is primarily concerned with such topics as the development of the social structure of the research relationship between experimenters and their subjects, as well as the role of methodology in the relationship of investigators to each other and to a wider social context. Another major theme addresses the relationship between the social practice of research and the nature of the product that is the outcome of this practice.

Review: Constructing the Subject: Historical Origins of Psychological Research
Contrary to some reviewers, I think this is a groundbreaking book in the canon of Critical Psychology, which unfolds and disassembles some of the claims made in traditional circles about what psychology is about. Instead, Danziger goes back to the supposed roots of psychology, laying bare many of the myths, narratives and fictions surrounding psychology's claim to be a 'science of the individual'. Necessary reading for those who wish to challenge the stranglehold that psychology has on late modern capitalist cultures.
