75 years of the Hungarian Psychological Association
Languages of publication
The lecture//talk delivered at the special General Assembly of the Psychological Association continues the fact-finding elucidation of the past of psychology in Hungary. It systematically overviews the forces present in the consecutive eight developmental stages of Hungarian society restricting the development of psychology and the different barriers it posed from the 1920s onwards, after the Second World War up until the decade after the political transformation. The science that has established itself at universities as well as within the Academy was successful in battling contra-selective forces. This fact is well represented by the symmetrical eight positive factors, among others the success of Hungarian scientists abroad, the promoting views and attitudes within psychology in Hungary, the healthy generational composition of the field, its publications, reforms regarding training and the mission of the Hungarian Psychological Association.
