Life Without Light

Life Without Light | Environmental Psychology | Scoop.it
Life as we know it would be very different without artificial light. By recognising the evolution of urban illumination in the two cities of London and Nairobi, we can understand how and why we've become so energy dependent.
Jenna Condie's insight:

Articifial light gives us a way of life we take for granted. Developing cities where lighting grids are being established provide us with an insight into the importance of light for life and also sustainable, newer and alternative forms of lighting.

Evolutionary Psychology and the Intercultural City

Evolutionary Psychology and the Intercultural City | Environmental Psychology | Scoop.it

Evolutionary studies of nature might not help us to understand everything better, but they might help us identify some “common denominators” of human taste that could benefit intercultural city-building. Most anthropologists (as well as a majority of humanists and social scientists) tend to dismiss the sciences of human nature, in particular sociobiology and its arguably more nuanced descendant, evolutionary psychology. Critiques of these fields of inquiry abound. I personally believe that anyone who accepts that Homo sapiens is an evolved species should take the sciences of human nature—and human evolutionary psychology—seriously.

7th International Conference on the Dialogical Self

7th International Conference on the Dialogical Self | Environmental Psychology | Scoop.it

The concept of the dialogical self, based on the work of psychologist Hubert Hermans and others, is a growing development in psychology that combines the concepts of theorists such as Bakhtin and James with the latest developments in cultural, cognitive and social psychology, as well as advancements in psychotherapy. This new approach is closely related to narrative psychology, constructivism, and cultural psychology, but the focus is on the multivoiced self. According to the concept of the dialogical self, the individual self is social in origin and dialogical in function. The self reflects and appropriates the voices of society and significant others, and within the functioning of the self we consider these voices in dialogue.


The purpose of the conference is to create a forum for dialogue across the boundaries of specific (sub)disciplines that explores the possibilities and challenges related to the dialogical self. As such, the Seventh International Conference on the Dialogical Self is open to psychologists and scholars of other social sciences and arts.
