41 THE ALIENATED PSYCHOLOGIST Lewis W. Brandt and Elisabeth P. Brandt The main-stream of Anglo-American psychology's failure to increase man's understanding of his functioning has been criti- cised not only by Russian psychologists like Rubinstein (1958), German psychologists like Zellinger (1970) and Holzkamp (1972), British psychologists like Bannister (1970a), psychia- trists like Ruesch (1967), and general systems theorists like Koestler (1967), but even by some Anglo-American colleagues like Carlson (1971), Schultz (1971), and Silverman (1971). In the present paper, we shall attempt to demonstrate that this failure is related to the way in which most Anglo-American psychologists structure their work. This paper thus represents another aspect of the psychology of the psychologist in line with the thinking of Thomae (1969), Bannister (1970b), Ka- minski (1970), and Gouldner (1970). Other aspects of the psychology of the psychologist were discussed by one of us in earlier papers (Brandt, 1970a, 1971a & b) which dealt with the ways in which psychologists exclude themselves from their own field by developing theories which lead to paradoxes when applied to psychologists.
