Example text

The dream of producing clear psychological principles each neatly tied to different sorts of situation has not been realised. Instead, an intricate and sprawling subject has been created, whose own internal theoretical structure is every bit as contradictory as common sense. This can be illustrated briefly by considering one of the major trends in social psychological research during the 1960s and 1970s, which went under the general, and rather misleading, heading of ‘risky-shift’ research (for comparatively recent reviews of this research tradition, see Doise and Moscovici 1984; Fraser and Foster 1982).

Let me illustrate this argument with specific reference to one particular area of research which has attracted accusations of pseudoscience in epic proportions - the research on lesbianism and male homosexuality. The following discussion is drawn from the more detailed review of this literature in Kitzinger (1987). g. Kronemeyer 1980; Moberly 1983). In the last two or three years this model has appeared to gain popularity in scientific writing - not because more evidence has appeared to support it, but because of the increasingly repressive political climate, and the moral panic about AIDS.

Science fiction’s ambivalence is a kind of speculation (Derrida 1987), a qualified, uncertain exploration beyond the conclusions derived from evidence. Psychologists have started to explore the psychological significance of such narratives (Ridgway and Benjamin 1987), but they have not addressed the science fiction aspects of psychology itself. Traditional social psychology is, in any case, opposed to science-fiction speculations. It wants to tell stories about a wholly real world, while science fiction bridges metonymically the imaginary and the real.
