Social Psychologists in Schools: Some Concepts and Interventions

pp. 10—15

Consider Martin Buber’s description of his radical view of man : “Man exists anthropologically not in his isolation but in the completeness of the relation between man and man; what humanity is can be properly grasped only in vital reciprocity” (Buber, 1965, p. 84). A psychology of culture-building and organized man, in other words, is one that theorizes about, gathers data on, and carries out interventions with people as they interact with each other. This focus on people in reciprocal relations requires the psychologist to enter fields of social and organizational forces and to consider those forces not merely as the context for his work but as its very subject matter.
