Ian Parker (born 1956) is a British psychologist who has been a principal exponent of three quite diverse critical traditions inside the discipline. His writing has provided compass points for researchers searching for alternatives to 'mainstream' psychology in the English-speaking world (that is, mainstream psychology that is based on laboratory-experimental studies that reduce behaviour to individual mental processes). He is author or co-author of 20 books, and editor or co-editor of 15 books. His books and articles have been published in 14 languages.

dbo:abstract
  • Ian Parker (1956) es un renombrado psicólogo británico y una figura central en las perspectivas críticas y radicales de la psicología contemporánea. Autor y coautor de 20 libros, y editor y coeditor de quince libros. Sus textos y artículos se publicaron en 14 idiomas. Sus obras han proporcionado puntos de referencia para investigadores que buscan alternativas al trabajo psicológico "tradicional" en el mundo angloparlante, como es el caso de los estudios que se llevan a cabo en el laboratorio, que buscan la adaptación al medio y que reducen el comportamiento a un proceso mental individual. Las tres principales tradiciones críticas en las que se ubica la psicología crítica de Ian Parker son "el análisis de discurso", "la psicología marxista" y "el psicoanálisis", en particular el "psicoanálisis lacaniano". Parker centra cada una de estas tradiciones en la ideología y el poder. Esto ha dado lugar a feroces discusiones, no sólo por parte de los psicólogos "tradicionales", sino también por otros "psicólogos críticos". Parker fluctúa en sus obras de un punto de interés a otro, y parece no estar satisfecho con ninguna tradición particular de investigación, usando cada una de las diversas tradiciones críticas para cuestionar las otras.

  • Ian Parker (born 1956) is a British psychologist who has been a principal exponent of three quite diverse critical traditions inside the discipline. His writing has provided compass points for researchers searching for alternatives to 'mainstream' psychology in the English-speaking world (that is, mainstream psychology that is based on laboratory-experimental studies that reduce behaviour to individual mental processes). He is author or co-author of 20 books, and editor or co-editor of 15 books. His books and articles have been published in 14 languages. Parker went to Ravens Wood School in Keston, Kent, UK, studied psychology at Plymouth Polytechnic and the University of Southampton, lectured at Manchester Polytechnic from 1985, was appointed Professor of Psychology at Bolton Institute in 1996, and returned to Manchester as Professor of Psychology at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2000. In 2012 he was suspended for questioning, in his capacity as departmental union representative for the University and College Union, work-load and appointment procedures. There was an international campaign for his reinstatement, and an online petition which claimed 'victory' with 3772 signatures. In 2013 he resigned his post, and moved to the University of Leicester, and also took up visiting professorial positions at Universiteit Gent, Belgium, Universidade de Sao Paulo, Brasil, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain, Birkbeck University of London, UK, University of Roehampton, UK and University of Manchester, UK. The three critical traditions Parker has promoted are 'discursive analysis', 'Marxist psychology' and 'psychoanalysis'. Each of these traditions is adapted by him to encourage an attention to ideology and power, and this modification has given rise to fierce debates, not only from mainstream psychologists but also from other 'critical psychologists'. Parker moves in his writing from one focus to another, and it seems as if he is not content with any particular tradition of research, using each of the different critical traditions to throw the others into question. Parker is a practising psychoanalyst, an analyst member of the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research, and the London Society of the New Lacanian School. He is President of the College of Psychoanalysts-UK. He is Professor of Management in the School of Management at the University of Leicester. Parker edited a four-volume 'major work' Critical Psychology for Routledge in 2011, and a Handbook of Critical Psychology in 2015. A collection of published and previously unpublished work appeared in six books published by Routledge in the series 'Psychology After Critique'. He edits the 'Concepts for Critical Psychology' series for Routledge, and is managing editor of the Annual Review of Critical Psychology. (en)
