Robert Ausch received his BA from NYU and his Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from the Graduate Center from the City University of New York (CUNY). His dissertation examined the history of curriculum in American science education in the context of changes in what constitutes science. Robert has spent many years conducting qualitative school-based research in NYC public schools and teaches in both psychology and education departments. His research focuses on critical psychology, or the ways in which certain taken for granted assumptions become institutionalized in psychology. Roberts recent books include An Advanced Guide To Psychological Thinking: Critical and Historical Perspectives (2015, MD: Lexington Books) as well as Methodological Problems with the Academic Sources of Popular Psychology: Method, Inference and Measurement (2016, MD: Lexington Books), which focuses on the philosophical problems of method in psychology.
