Jonathan Potter is Professor of discourse analysis at the Loughborough University. He is one of the inventors of discursive psychology. He is co-author of the influential book Discourse and Social Psychology which is one of the foundational texts of discursive psychology. This has been cited more than a thousand times in more than a hundred different journals. More recently his Representing Reality provided an overview and critique of constructionist work in social sciences. In discursive psychology he built a specific style of work that is now commonplace in journals across the social sciences as well as indirectly fostering a swathe of non-experimental approaches to social psychology.
