Research during this period incorporated Freudian philosophy into explanations of mass and elite political behavior (McGuire 1993). Psychobiographies, such as Freud’s (1910) Leonardo da Vinci and a Memory of His Childhood also fit into this category of research (Runyan 1993). During the 1950s and 1960s, political psychology became heavily influenced by sociology and the focus of research shifted from the individual to society. As Horowitz explains, “The rhetoric was not all that different, but the flow was different.

Rather, the work was used selectively to explain African Americans’ heightened electoral and political participation. Basically, these ideas never really went away. But it was not just the political activity of African Americans themselves that called into question the behavioral image of their political mind and political psychology as described by the discipline. In the areas of psychology and political psychology, there arose contending and challenging images of the African-American political mind, which the field of political science neglected, and failed to put the needed and obvious correctives into place.

While these differ in content and duration, what ties them together is their strong political nature. Overt racism is perhaps the most obvious historic example, but the influence of social Darwinism gave “scientific” backing to one thread of argument that would continue on into modern times: that racial difference in human condition and achievement are caused not by environment, but by innate characteristics (see The JBHE Foundation 1996). The historical nature of the Black family structure, differential patterns of employment, and racial differences in crime rates were seen not as symptoms of environment and political differences between the races, but as evidence of a “tangle of pathology,” which convinced many that there is something inherently different about Black Americans (Guthrie 1980).
