Abstract: When the modern psychology was up against many dilemmas, the postmodern psychology, which adopted the new angle of view and the standpoint of the postmodernism severely, criticized and reanalyzed the every aspect of the modern psychology. Every psychologist had different viewpoints on the postmodern psychology, so the people who supported the modern psychology carried out many hassles with those who held with the postmodern psychology. This article summarized those arguments in the recent ten years, including the psychological epistemology、the study’s quality、the study’s method and the postmodern psychological contribution in the western psychology. When presenting those arguments, the author also gave some comments. The aim of doing so was to make the psychological development more clear, and let us comprehend more about both the theory construction of the postmodern psychology and the modern psychology, so the field of psychology would get more findings.
