I am now working on the history of clinical psychology, espicially cognitive behavioral therapy. I am coming to believe 1980s is the turning point of it.
Having read about 20 papers of cilinical psychology around that period, what I have to do now is to interpret them, thinking about siginificances of this period with respect to the later developments of the therapy or limitaitions it has set against it. It seems like I am not used to it. If there is a model to imitate, I can do better. And there seems to be one recently published. It is "Kokoro no Kagakushi"(The scientific history of psychology). It is written by Mioko Takahashi. She is one the discples of Shozo Omori, who is one of the greatest Japanese philosopher. I will read and follow suit.
