Indigenous psychologies (IPs) are constantly evolving. This issue’s target articles by K.-K. Hwang and L. Sundararajan recommend that IPs should be open to influences from other psychologies including mainstream psychology, but they differ in their other recommendations for IP. Hwang argues narrowly that IPs should use a specific approach and produce formal, reasonably context-free representations of parts of the IP researcher’s home culture. These should be tested but are assumed to have an “irresistible” background influence on people’s everyday thinking. Sundararajan argues instead for a broad communicative approach between all psychologies and that IPs should attend to research issues of global significance. I expect that IPs, which are already quite diverse, will become even more so in the future, while occasionally joining forces with other new developments in psychology. I also anticipate that IPs will move from a static “culture as shared” conceptualization of culture to a more dynamic, hybrid conceptualization that is in line with IPs’ strivings for knowledge that is usable in the IP researcher’s own society. Moreover, previously popular IP research issues related to national character and the like may become outdated. I provide some research suggestions in line with the idea that IPs should attend to issues of global general relevance.
