Thesis

Knowledge generation and scientific management in the field of psychotherapy

This project focuses on how and to what degree the knowledge generated in psychotherapy leads to coercive human understanding, and as a consequence, whether the science of the individual in this case is possible at all. We shall argue that whilst it is very easy for psychological sciences to become forms of “scientific management”, knowledge generated in psychotherapy can not only be the opposite of coercive, but is crucial in understanding the variability of the human mind.
