      In this presentation I want to comment on what I see as the location of Personal Construct Psychology within the field of psychology more generally, and particularly in relation to the theoretical perspective that has come to be known as social constructionism. But it is also an account and a history of my own intellectual journey over a period of nearly 20 years. The reason why I have decided to present my thoughts in this narrative way is that I do not hold with the hard science view that the academic and personal are separate realms. One’s intellectual sympathies are very personal, and are intimately connected to one’s experience, biography and at a superordinate level one’s values and beliefs. This presentation, then, is just one person’s construction.
