Project description

This PhD-research envisions an empirical-based (media-research) answer to the question if the position of psychology as a discourse in both self-experience and in the public domain has changed (in a qualitative way) in the last decades - if this is linked to changing socio-economic and cultural circumstances (globalisation) and what the moral and ethic consequences this brings for the involved parties.
