Abstract

In the beginning of the 21st century, a new direction has been emerging at the intersection of developmental, dynamic and social psychologies, anthropology, education, and sociology—which has become labeled cultural psychology. This fits the vast global social processes of most countries becoming multi-cultural in their social orders, and the World becoming one “global village”—with the corresponding need to know how different parts of that “village” function. The knowledge base of contemporary psychology has become truly inter-disciplinary, and its applications in the vast variety of cultural contexts need to be informed about varieties of cultural expectations. In that interdisciplinary synthesis, the knowledge base of contemporary psychology is increasingly international—while its applications in the various areas of social practices remain local. The book eries is meant to create an international forum for communicating key ideas of methodology, different approaches to family, relationships, and schooling, and social negotiations of issues of human and development. New perspectives—dynamic systems theory, dialogical perspectives on the development of the self, the role of various symbolic resources in human development, new perspectives on psychotherapy, and other new topics of interdisciplinary kind will figure prominently in the book series.
