What’s in a Subspecialty’s Name?
To the Editor:
I was surprised to learn that psychohistory had been deleted from the list of subspecialties. If I take the subjects that interest my younger colleagues as any indication of where the discipline is headed, it would seem that psychology is making a comebackalbeit pursued differently from how it was pursued a generation ago. Perhaps the subspecialty should be renamed psychological history.
