Summary/Abstract: In the last decades several new kinds of understanding and practicing psychotherapy have been labeled by their proponents and supporters as “postmodern”. The present paper tries to show that none of these can place themselves legitimately under the umbrella of postmodernism since none of them go all the way in breaking up the psychological tradition of modernity. Even more, we try to show that the roots of the frantic search for new names and new methods in psychology is nothing more than the effect of the enormous popularity gained by this field of study in the last century and, hence, of the boredom it got to generate for most of those involved in it.
