'A transformation is currently under way in the historiography of the science of psychology, and Kurt Danziger's book is one of the best of the new breed arising from that transformation ... Constructing the Subject is essential reading for historians of psychology, and highly recommended reading for other historians and sociologists of science.' Isis 'Kurt Danziger's Constructing the Subject is the most striking achievement in historical research within psychology since the publication of Edwin G. Boring's History of Experimental Psychology in 1929.' American Scientist 'Danziger is to be commended for his incisive and compelling archaeology of investigative practices. Without a doubt, this is the most important history of psychology to come along in years.' Contemporary Psychology
