Narrative and the Politics of Identity

Phillip L. Hammack

Oxford University Press

This chapter brings together theoretical ideas about the relationship between individual minds and the societies in which they are embedded with a practical prescription for praxis that might speak to the needs for peace, justice, and mutual recognition that Israelis and Palestinians both require. Praxis refers to the linking of theory to action and the shift from interpretation to social change, in the tradition of scholars like Karl Marx, Paulo Freire, and George Lukács. The chapter explores the implications of this research for possibilities of new praxis, in both the discipline of psychology and the practice of peace education. In so doing, it offers further critical interrogation of the American model of intervention, deconstructing some of its problematic assumptions about mind and society. The aim of this interrogation is to offer a constructive critique that challenges underlying assumptions but offers hypotheses for reconceptualized interventions.
