    Indigenous Psychology: Grounding Science in Culture, Why and How?Louise Sundararajan - 2015 - Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour 45 (1):64-81.
    My agenda is to ground psychological science in culture by using complex rather than overly simple models of culture and using indigenous categories as criteria of a translation test to determine the adequacy of scientific models of culture. I first explore the compatibility between Chinese indigenous categories and complex models of culture, by casting in the theoretical framework of symmetry and symmetry breaking a series of translations performed on Fiske's relational models theory. Next, I show how the dimensional approach to (...)

    Happiness Donut: A Confucian Critique of Positive Psychology.Louise Sundararajan - 2005 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 25 (1):35-60.
    An empirically based version of the good life as proposed by positive psychology is a donut with something missing at the core--the moral map. This paper addresses ramifications of this lacuna, and suggests ways to narrow the gap between science and life. By applying an extended version of the self-regulation theory of Higgins to a cross cultural analysis of the good life as envisioned by Seligman and Confucius, respectively, this paper sheds light on the culturally encapsulated value judgments behind positive (...)

    Religious Awe: Potential Contributions of Negative Theology to Psychology, "Positive" or Otherwise.Louise Sundararajan - 2002 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 22 (2):174-197.
    A hallmark of Christian mysticism is negative theology, which refers to the school of thought that gives prominence to negation in reference to God. By denying the possibility to name God, negative theology cuts at the very root of our cognitive makeup--the human impulse to name and put things into categories--and thereby situates us "halfway between a 'no longer' and a 'not yet'" , a temporality in which "the past is negated, but...the present is not yet formulated" . The affective (...)

    It's Turtles All the Way Down: A Semiotic Perspective on the Basic Emotions Debate.Louise Sundararajan - 2008 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 28 (2):430-443.
    Comment on an article by . A semiotic perspective based on the philosophy of Charles Sanders Peirce is offered to open up new directions to the current debate over basic emotions. While explaining in a systematic way contested questions such as causal chain, association, and dissociation among the components of emotion, this semiotic analysis suggests that preoccupation with these building blocks type of questions masks and distracts attention from the more global problems that plague affective science—the essentialism that drives the (...)

    The Painted Dragons in Affective Science: Can the Chinese Notion of Ganlei Add a Transformative Detail?Louise Sundararajan - 2009 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 29 (2):114-121.
    I propose for emotion research a dynamic approach to truth in which folk theories, no matter how much they may be infested with magical thinking and peculiar beliefs, can function as potential competitors and valued interlocutors on the platform of theory construction. For demonstration, I present the ancient Chinese notion of ganlei as a counterpoint to Western metaphysics. Potential contributions of this indigenous belief system to theory and research on emotions include bringing greater clarity to existing concepts of empathy and (...)
