That constitution is a social process, which is part of human history. Certainly, psychologists are always recreating the objects of their investigation in the course of investigating them, but they are not free to do so at random. They are constrained by historically constituted structures, both cognitive and practical. Psychological objects are also the products of history and can only be understood as such. The historicity of psychological objects has three aspects: construction, use, and reference, and in what follows I shall consider each of these in tum.

Psychological Objects, Practice, and History 31 discourse that has many participants. Thought-work, therefore, should not be seen simply as the activity of independent thinkers but as the product of a "thought collective" (Fleck, 1979). One consequence of this is that there is generally a practical aspect to what may on the surface appear as purely intellectual constructions. The invitation to think about matters in a certain way is, at least by implication, an invitation to act in a certain way (Schon, 1979).

As in the case of the psychological objects that are categories of people, we are dealing with objects that are constituted specifically by and for the purpose of psychological investigation and intervention (Gergen, 1982). Again, this does not mean that these objects have no links with objects outside disciplinary psychological discourse, but the natur~ of these links cannot be discovered by the methods of psychological investigation that necessarily constitute their own objects and none other.
