Book description

Sociocultural psychology is a discipline located at the crossroads between the natural and social sciences and the humanities. This international overview of the field provides an antireductionist and comprehensive account of how experience and behaviour arise from human action with cultural materials in social practices. The outcome is a vision of the dynamics of sociocultural and personal life in which time and developmental constructive transformations are crucial. This second edition provides expanded coverage of how particular cultural artefacts and social practices shape experience and behaviour in the realms of art and aesthetics, economics, history, religion and politics. Special attention is also paid to the development of identity, the self and personhood throughout the lifespan, while retaining the emphasis on experience and development as key features of sociocultural psychology.

Reviews

'The Cambridge Handbook of Sociocultural Psychology is an exemplary effort to offer a scholarly, comprehensive and innovative reference for understanding the interface and co-construction of mind and society. It celebrates the multiplicity and mutuality of sociocultural processes in the global context. This encyclopaedic work is going to become a primary source for students and scholars seeking insights into the domain of sociopsychological analyses. The cutting-edge conceptual and empirical work featured in this Handbook is an indispensable resource for doing psychology in the twenty-first century.'

Girishwar Misra - Delhi University, India

'At a time when the neuroscientific view of the mind seems ubiquitous, this book reconnects psychology to its fundamental questions, from the concept of person to the semiotic constitution of mind. Written by a genuinely international team, this Handbook covers core topics of sociocultural psychology in a comprehensive and updated way.'

Carlos Cornejo - Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile

'This second edition is a suggestive fresco on how sociocultural psychology, being an idiographic and nomethetic science, is capable of relating new findings from neighbouring disciplines, and how it can provide an effective and original answer to the problem of big data.'

Andrea Smorti - University of Florence
