Psychology in Contemporary China focuses on the advancement of psychology in China and the different areas to which this field is applied. The book proceeds by outlining the evolution, nature, and characteristics of Chinese psychology. The text then points out that studies on this discipline is generally difficult, because of the lack of publication of resources in English. The process of learning this field is often done through visitations, with specialists going to China to conduct research and lectures. The text investigates the evolution of psychology in China, as well as its progress through education. The relationship of this discipline with political and social concerns is highlighted, and the progress of this field in universities in China is emphasized. The practice of psychology in China is somewhat limited. This lack is expressed by the fact that psychologists avoid questions that have political content. An examination of the attitudes of Chinese is also presented, and their views on individuality, self-criticism, violence, child-rearing, religion, and modernization are discussed. The book is of great importance for scholars and readers who research on the evolution, growth, and contributions of psychology to society.
