'I look forward to the publication moving back towards the objectivity, political neutrality and impartiality it should be practising, once this current bafï¬‚ing trend or post-modernist anti-intellectualism dies.' So concluded a recent comment on our website, bemoaning 'a blatant shift in the majority of content the magazine has been publishing'.
Inevitably, I have views on this. To a large extent, this magazine is you: unlike many publications, we do not have a large team of staff writers or freelancers. Perhaps there has been a 'blatant shift' in psychology in recent years. And perhaps it's high time. When we see psychologists standing up for academic freedom (p.2); acting as 'revolutionaries' advocating more robust and open practices (p.10); calling on us to 'take arms against a sea of troubles'; then it's hard, for me at least, to see that as a problem. As Daryl O'Connor says (p.11), 'it's an incredibly exciting time to be a psychologist'.
If you see it differently, get in touch. We're a forum for debate: your forum.
