This paper argues that the theory of social representations has enriched social psychology by enlarging its scope. It has made social psychology an explicitly social discipline and restored its links with other social sciences such as sociology and anthropology. Much remains to be done to persuade psychologists, as distinct from social psychologists, to accept the theory of social representations.
