oa Journal of Psychology in Africa - Indigenisation of psychology in South Africa: An awkward entry into the fray

 

Abstract

The need for appropriateness or relevance has always been topical in psychology. In this essay attempts are made to operationalize the concept of indigenisation: Second, the ideological tendencies of intellectuals (viewed as the modem sector) in South Africa are highlighted as a source of hindrance to the development of an indigenous psychology. Finally, a call is made for psychologists to consider the inclusion of African culture in the prospective indigenised psychology.
