"This provocative work seeks to provide a response to the question `What does morality have to do with psychology in a value-neutral, postmodern world?' Arguing from an interpretive-pragmatic view, Brinkmann argues that psychology is fundamentally grounded in moral concern. ... Brinkmann makes a case for understanding morality as fundamentally embedded in social practices; a case in which figures such as Aristotle, Dewey, Heidegger, MacIntyre, and Charles Taylor loom large in the background." (Edwin E. Gantt, Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology, Vol. 36 (1), 2016)
