📒The Oxford Handbook Of Culture And Psychology ✍ Jaan Valsiner

📒Culture In Psychology ✍ Corinne Squire
📝Culture in Psychology SYNOPSIS : Culture in Psychology breaks new ground by attempting to understand the complexity and specificity of cultural identities today. It rejects the idea that Western culture is a standard, or that any culture is homogenous and stable. Equally, it rejects the notion that culture is a mechanism that enhances reproductive fitness. Instead, it alerts psychologists to the many forms of 'foreignness' that research should address and to alliances psychology can make with other disciplines such as anthropology, feminism and psychoanalysis. Part one explores the origins of the new 'cultural psychology' in social change movements, in fields such as ethnography and cultural studies, and as a response to evolutionary psychology. Part two looks at how people create and sustain the meanings of social categories of 'class', gender, 'race' and ethnicity, while the third part examines the interaction between written and visual representations in popular culture and everyday lived culture. The final part examines the idiosyncratic significance cultural forms have for individuals and their unconscious meanings.

📒Handbook Of Cross Cultural Psychology Theory And Method ✍ John W. Berry
📝Handbook of Cross cultural Psychology Theory and method SYNOPSIS : Comprehensive and thoroughly revised, the second edition of this respected handbook accurately represents the dynamic nature of contemporary cross-cultural psychology. Volume 1 offers an up-to-date assessment of theoretical developments and methodological issues in this rapidly evolving area of psychology. Reflecting changes in the field itself, this edition incorporates the views of editors and authors from a variety of cultures, traditions, and theoretical perspectives. And it introduces material in a number of areas not covered in the previous edition. In nine chapters leading scholars consider two basic concerns addressed by cross-cultural psychology: the diversity of human behavior in the world, and the link between individual behavior and the cultural context in which it occurs. Chapter authors grapple with a variety of issues, beginning with the difficulty of investigating cultural influences on behavior when an examination of the field's literature reveals 200 definitions of the word “culture.” They distinguish the differing perspectives of cultural psychology and cross-cultural, or culture-comparative, psychology; describe the development and influence of indigenous psychologies; and consider the implications of emerging theoretical perspectives on research design and methods. As they explore the tension between the diversity of cultural influences and the search for universal aspects of behavior, authors draw upon insights from related fields, including comparative anthropology and the evolutionary perspective of sociobiology.
📒An Invitation To Cultural Psychology ✍ Jaan Valsiner
📝An Invitation to Cultural Psychology SYNOPSIS : An Invitation to Cultural Psychology looks at the everyday life worlds of human beings through the lens of a new synthetic perspective in cultural psychology – that of semiotic dynamics. Based on historical work from many different fields in the social and behavioural sciences, and the humanities too, this perspective applied to cultural psychology suggests that human beings are constantly creating, maintaining and abandoning hierarchies of meanings within all cultural contexts they experience. It’s a perspective that leans heavily on the work of the great French philosopher, Henri Bergson, only now being realised as a core basis for human cultural living. Jaan Valsiner is the founding editor of the major journal in the field, Culture & Psychology, and Editor of the Oxford Handbook of Culture and Psychology. He is the first Niels Bohr Professor of Cultural Psychology at Aalborg University in Denmark, where he leads Europe's first Research Centre on Cultural Psychology.
