Janette Friedrich (ed.), 2022. Karl Bühler und das Wiener Psychologische Institut : dokumente und fundstücke. Lausanne: Sdvig press. (Bühleriana, 1). 390 p. ISBN : 9782970082958
“What is the local in the history of science and what can be observed about it? We are used to reconstructing the thinking of a researcher from his publications, his correspondence, his manuscripts; but science is also and above all activity, “an event hic et nunc that has its definite place in geographical space and in the Gregorian calendar” (Bühler). It is precisely this local moment, the past presence of science, that the volume seeks to trace. The journey goes to Vienna in the 1920s/30s. In August 1922, the psychologist Karl Bühler was appointed full professor of philosophy with a special focus on psychology and pedagogy at the University of Vienna and entrusted with the direction of the newly founded Vienna Psychological Institute. The published documents and found objects provide insight into hitherto little-known research projects and debates, into ideas that were developed and rejected again, and draw attention to the numerous staff members who worked at the Institute in the years 1922-1938.”
Editor: Janette Friedrich, born 1961, PhD 1991, lecturer at the Faculty of Psychology and Education, University of Geneva.
