    Does Interpretation in Psychology Differ From Interpretation in Natural Science?Jack Martin & Jeff Sugarman - 2009 - Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour 39 (1):19-37.
    Following an initial discussion of the general nature of interpretation in contemporary psychology, and social and natural science, relevant views of Charles Taylor and Thomas Kuhn are considered in some detail. Although both Taylor and Kuhn agree that interpretation in the social or human sciences differs in some ways from interpretation in the natural sciences, they disagree about the nature and origins of such difference. Our own analysis follows, in which we consider differences in interpretation between the natural and social (...)

    Historical Ontology and Psychological Description.Jeff Sugarman - 2009 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 29 (1):5-15.
    The author describes and examines Ian Hacking’s approach to historical ontology and its application to psychological description. Historical ontology is concerned with the study of phenomena that come in and out of being. Phenomena under psychological description not only are historical, but also are particularly susceptible to what Hacking calls dynamic nominalism. Dynamic nominalism characterizes the ways our descriptive practices of naming interact with things named. More precisely, in describing ourselves psychologically, we humans are uniquely capable of reacting to such (...)

    Psychology's Reality Debate: A "Levels of Reality" Approach.Jack Martin & Jeff Sugarman - 1999 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 19 (2):177-194.
    For different reasons, some modern and postmodern psychologists are skeptical about the reality of psychological phenomena as irreducible, influential entities. Nonetheless, much psychological inquiry presumes precisely such a reality. The authors present a "levels of reality" approach to psychological reality that they believe can assuage some of the concerns of psychological skeptics. This approach treats psychological reality as inseparably embedded in sociocultural, biological, and physical levels of reality, without being reducible to any of these other levels. The authors develop their (...)

    Societal-Psychological Constructionism: Societies, Selves, Traditions, and Fusions.Jack Martin & Jeff Sugarman - 1997 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 17 (2):120-136.
    Frequently cited problems of dualism, as it pertains to the relation of psychological mind to sociocultural world, arise from assumptions of fixed societal and psychological ontologies. If, instead, societal and psychological ontologies are understood to be both emergent and mutable, as a consequence of their dynamic relation, many of the metaphysical and epistemological difficulties encountered by classic psychological-sociocultural dualism are avoided. To this end, an ontological and epistemological position, called societal-psychological constructionism, is presented. The merits of this position relative to (...)

    Transcendental Interpretation: An Alternative Approach to Psychological Inquiry.Jeff Sugarman - 1994 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 15 (1):16-40.
    Presents the transcendental interpretation approach to psychological inquiry based on the use of the Kantian transcendental argument, which relies on the criterion of consistency. Kant's purpose in employing this argument was as a means for justifying particular knowledge claims. Use of this approach is illustrated by examining the intersubjective and moral conditions necessary for the practice of selfhood. It is argued that phenomena of interest to psychological study differ fundamentally from those of natural science, rendering some of the methods applied (...)

  10. Bridging Social Constructionism and Cognitive Constructivism: A Psychology of Human Possibility and Constraint.Jack Martin & Jeff Sugarman - 1996 - Journal of Mind and Behavior 17 (4):291-320.
    A theory intended to bridge social constructionist and cognitive constructivist thought is presented, and some of its implications for psychotherapy and education are considered. The theory is mostly concerned with understanding the emergence and development of the psychological from its biological and sociocultural origins. It is argued that the psychological is underdetermined by the biological and sociocultural, and possesses a shifting, dynamic ontology that emerges within a developmental context. Increasingly sophisticated capabilities of memory and imagination mediate and support the emergence (...)

    John Macmurray's Philosophy of the Personal and the Irreducibility of Psychological Persons.Jeff Sugarman - 2006 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 26 (1-2):172-188.
    John Macmurray's philosophy of "the form of the personal" is examined with particular interest in his emphasis on persons as agents, his account of psychological development, his claim that our self-awareness as persons is acquired from the mutuality of personal relations, and his important contribution in placing personhood at the center of inquiries into the human condition. Subsequently, it is argued that the reality of psychologically capable personhood so construed is irreducible to physical, biological, or social categories frequently deemed by (...)
