Profile

Since January 2014, Ivan Flis has been a PhD cadidate at the Descartes Centre at Utrecht University. His project deals with the history of the development of theories and research practices in international psychology in the second part of the 20th century. 

Ivan's project aims to chart the development of research techniques and theories that were and are used in psychology. The research deals with the internalist debates of what is 'proper science' within psychology, the sectarian debates of discipline identity and fractionation that have been happening for decades, and the role theories and theoretical constructs play within this. His perspectives on this development of psychology as a discipline are informed by history of science, philosophy of (social) science, scientometrics, cultural history, and science and technology studies. In short, he looks at the interaction of methodologies and theories, and what meta-perspectives and disciplinary meta-narratives arise out of those debates.

Ivan obtained his bachelor and master degree in psychology at the Centre for Croatian Studies at the University of Zagreb, Croatia. His master thesis dealt with the psychology students' understanding of significance testing at Croatian universities, trying to contextualize what the students were taught about significance testing in the wider debates between the frequentist and Bayesian camps.

He currently serves as a member of the editorial board of Shells and Pebbles, a blog on history of science.
