More about the book

About the book

This volume offers a selection of theoretical views and empirical investigations by researchers in Europe, South America, and North America. The theoretical chapters seek to clarify and extend central concepts of the cultural-historical tradition, such as activity, internalisation, and personality. The empirical chapters seek to engage, criticise, and extend theoretical concepts such as language construction, role, competition and cooperation, internalization, intersubjectivity, and heterogeneity of thinking.

Press reviews

Giyoo Hatano Mind, Culture, and Activity

"This volume offers a useful overview of a broad range of research in the cultural-historical tradition. It is undoubtedly useful for both those within the tradition and those outside of it ..." 

Leslie R. Herrenkohl Theory & Psychology

"I would recommend this book to other scholars who are familiar with, and interested in, cultural-historical approaches to mind."
