On a basic level, cyberpsychology refers to the comparison of the mind with different kinds of machines. This multidisciplinary collection brings together essays by leading psychologists and cultural theorists working in the spheres of technology and psychology to explore links between popular culture, technoscience, feminism and politics. Tracing historical and contemporary lines of argument around the fascination between different forms of psychological and machine culture, contributors articulate cyberpsychological reflections on contemporary crises in psychology with emerging technologies of the self. The volume offers challenging perspectives and insights to anyone interested in the connections between psychology and technological developments in the information age.
