Article on liberation ethics, coloniality and psychology

Here is a link to my article, “A Renewal of Ethics”, in the British monthly, The Psychologist.  The article is based on a lecture I gave at the British Psychological Society conference last Easter.  Rather breathlessly, it considers some ethical challenges, the inadequacy of dominant frameworks for guiding action, the origins of the contemporary malaise in the colonial encounter, and some alternative frameworks to consider.  Liberation thought runs through the article.  I’d like to develop the analysis presented in more detail in further work, so I’d really appreciate constructive comment, either on this site, by email, or where possible in  person.
