Does social psychology have room for the category of subjectivity?

Joanna Trzópek


Abstract
After a long break, psychology nowadays seems to be returning to engaging issues. Most certainly, the problem of an agent falls within this category. Two fundamental attributes are usually linked to the agent: the will and self-knowledge. The article confronts this understanding, grounded in experience and philosophical tradition, with research results and theories of human functioning created on their basis. The issues referred to are of a meta-theoretical nature and are partly located at the intersection of psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy. The text consists of four parts. Part I discusses the general agent-related issues on the folk and scientific grounds. In part II, the agent appears in the context of problems of awareness. Part III focuses on research in social psychology (particularly social cognition). Part IV provides a venue for outlining the arising questions and doubts.

Key words: agent, agency, self-awareness, folk psychology, neuroscience, social cognition, mind-body relation
