Cheiron Meeting Wraps Up

Cheiron statue in Kokkala, India The final sessions of the 2009 Cheiron meeting at Penn St. U. finished on Sunday afternoon. One of the highlights of conference was an evening session sponsored by the Archives of the History of American Psychology (U. Akron) in which were shown several films on child development that had been produced by Walter Mischel Arnold Gesell [thanks Vinny!) between about 1915 and 1930. The films were presented by AHAP director David Baker and two of his assistants, John Bean and Lizette Royer. The complete program can be found on the Cheiron website.

The banquet Saturday night featured the annual Cheiron book auction at which the zany auctioneering of Ian Lubek (and others who shall remain nameless) helped to raise about $1000 for the student travel fund. Continue reading Cheiron Meeting Wraps Up

Objectivity reviewed in Isis

ObjectivityIn the first issue of the one hundredth volume of Isis, Martin Kusch provides an extensive review of Lorraine Daston and Peter Galison’s Objectivity (pictured right).

Objectivity is the long-awaited expansion of Daston and Galison’s influential 1992 paper, “The Image of Objectivity,” into a hefty book-length investigation. Undoubtedly, Objectivity will be required reading for anyone in the history, sociology, and philosophy of science for years to come. This is because the book not only throws a striking new light on the last two hundred years of science, art, and philosophy; it also outlines and exemplifies a provocative, bold, and historically as well as philosophically sophisticated approach to the history of thought more generally. In its scope and ambition Objectivity reminds one of classics in the Annales school, like Philip Ariès’s L’homme devant la mort, or of Michel Foucault’s Les mots et les choses. It is likely that Daston and Galison’s chef d’oeuvre will prove equally influential. (p. 129)

For those interested in discussing how some of the ideas in Objectivity can be applied to psychology, AHP‘s own Chris Green will be presenting such a paper at the forthcoming meeting of Cheiron at Penn State: it is entitled, E. B. Titchener and the New History of Objectivity.
