    Abstract:
    This essay establishes the principles governing my scholarly career at the University of California, Berkeley, indicating its contrasts to the later developments there of a perspective called New Historicism. That group pursued a narrower concept of what I previously categorized as Historical Psychology, following a different tradition established by such analysts as Lucien Febvre and Zevedi Barbu. This essay provides a frame into which most of my published work will fit, as seen in my recently published book "Shakespeare Relocated: Studies in Historical Psychology" (and also partly seen here in Academia). Those materials are not to be grouped with that later work identified as New Historicism by my colleagues at U.C. Berkeley. They belong to a quite different tradition, despite an apparently shared concern with shifts in literary psychology in the Renaissance, which I attribute rather to broad Reformation issues, not to narrowly political manipulations.
    Notes:
    This essay surveys my experience in literary and cultural scholarship at Cambridge and Oxford Universities, and U.C. Berkeleym. over the last fifty
