Using these three critical dimensions as the meeting place of the chapters in this volume brings them together in their emphasis on the importance and necessity for doing psychology differently, for remaking the psychological subject. Diverse in their desiderata of constructive transformations, varied in their approaches and areas of consideration, the chapters are critical nodes networked through situated knowledges for social change.
