Psychology has traditionally examined human experience from a realist perspective, focusing on observable 'facts'. This is especially so in areas of psychology which focus on the body, such as sexuality, madness or reproduction. In contrast, many sociologists, anthropologists and feminists have focused exclusively on the cultural and communicative aspects of 'the body' treating it purely as an object constructed within socio-cultural discourse. This new collection of sophisticated discursive analyses explores this divide from a variety of theoretical standpoints, including psychoanalysis, social representations theory, feminist theory, critical realism, post-structuralism and social constructionism. Body Talk reconciles the divide by putting forward a new 'materialist-discursive' approach. It also provides an introduction to social constructionist and discursive approaches which is accessible to those with limited previous knowledge of socio-linguistic theory, and showcases the distinctive contribution that psychologists can make to the field.

Naturschutz für den jugendlichen Körper!: Die beiden Journalisten nehmen sich des aktuellen Themas des menschlichen Körpers an. Er ist heute intensivsten Attacken ausgesetzt. Sie versammeln Texte unterschiedlicher Fachleute aus Medizin, Psychologie, Krankenpflege etc. Die Artikel des ersten Teils diskutieren heutige Schönheitsideale, die Mechanismen der Verliebtheit sowie somatische Vorgänge in der Pubertät. Der zweite Teil behandelt Schönheitschirurgie und Essstörungen. Im dritten Teil finden sich Überlegungen zum Körper als Inszenierung in Form von Bildern und Bildmanipulationen, Tatoo und Piercing etc. Die Texte sind von unterschiedlicher Qualität, insbesondere unterschiedlich dicht. Sie sind aber hoch interessant. Ihr aufklärerischer und kritischer Anspruch dient wohl vor allem Personen im Umkreis Jugendlicher, dh. Lehrpersonen, Eltern, Jugendarbeiter etc. Ab 16 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Ruedi W. Schweizer.
