Abstract [sv]

It is claimed that there are insights about people's thought, feelings, and psychology that cannot be gained from a scientific psychology, when it is defined as a natural scientific perspective on human endeavors. At the same time a psychological perspective becomes more and more common in public discussions and dialogues. This is illustrated by a content analysis of protocols from the Swedish parliament. It is exemplified how the usage of a psychological perspective in discussions and dialogues can serve rhetorical purposes, but at also diminish possibilities of having genuine communication.
