Abstract:

"This wonderful book broadens the central question in psychology of what changes in human development to address not just change across the lifespan, but change across contexts, cultures. and societies. The reframing of developmental science in this volume is vital for the understanding and fulfillment of human potential in global contexts."--Hirokazu Yoshikawa Professor of Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education.

"This book joins forces between the study of cultures and the study of human development, and offers new insights into the interplay between cultural change and human adaptation. It provides an agora of excellent scientists and hot topics from around the world, and a blueprint for tomorrow's aspiring research and application."--Rainer K. Silbereisen, President, International Union of Psychological Science.

"Jensen and her colleagues present a singularly creative, important, and timely integration of developmental and cultural perspectives on the course of human life. The book provides an exciting, rich, and compelling framework for productively fusing developmental and cultural theory, research, and applications in the service of understanding and enhancing human development."--Richard M. Lerner. Bergstrom Chair in Applied Developmental Science and Director, Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development, Tufts University.

"In this remarkable book, the contributors cover extensive ground, from children's learning and memory to identity development, from emerging adulthood to acceptance of self and acceptance of the world. The resulting product is thought-provoking, informative, and enjoyable reading. This volume contributes significantly to our thinking concerning some of the most basic meta-theoretical debates in the fields of developmental psychology, cultural/cross-cultural psychology, and anthropology."--Cigdem Kagitcibasi, Professor of Psychology, Koc University, and Member of the Turkish Academy of Sciences.

"The rich essays in this volume explore the fundamental question of what it means to become a person. How is it that people are born with largely the same biological capacities, yet develop to think and behave in such different ways across cultures? Integrating two research streams that often seem unaware of each other's existence, the contributors provide a provocative and fascinating mapping of the many paths of human development. As a whole, the book offers a forceful argument for how the study of developmental psychology is very relevant to global contexts."--Steven J. Heine, Professor of Psychology, University of British Columbia.

"Human developmental research is increasingly comparative, cross-cultural, and international. These outstanding researhers bring a rich, pluralist perspective alive in chapters that do not bracket context out, but richly incorporate context and meaning into our understandings of developmental stages, cognition, social behavior, and the desired outcomes of development."--Thomas S. Weisner, Professor of Anthropology. Departments of Psychiatry and Anthropology, University of California at Los Angeles.

"A tour-de-force integration of cultural and developmental perspectives, producing fresh insights for theory, research, and policy. Away with meaningless distinctions and oppositions, this volume makes clear that any serious study of human development must integrate culture and developmental perspectives which invariably produces more than the sum of its parts. It is a must read for scholars and practitioners alike."--Michelle Gelfand, Professor of Psychology, University of Maryland, College Park.

This cutting-edge book brings together eminent experts who propose ways to bridge cultural and developmental approaches to human psychology. The experts heed the call of cultural psychology to study different peoples around the world and to recognize that culture profoudly impacts how we think, feel, and act, At the same time, they also take seriously the developmental science perspective that humans everywhere share common life stage tasks and ways of learning. Doing what has not previously been done, the experts integrate key insights and findings from cultural and developmental research. The result is a book brimming with new and creative syntheses for theory, research, and policy.

The book is in step with a world where culturally diverse peoples interact with one another more than ever due to migration, worldwide media, and international trade and travel. With these interactions come changes to cultures and the psychological development of their members, and the implications for scholarship and policy are thoughtfully examined here.

The book covers a wide range of related topics. It addresses the intersection of development and culture for psychological processes such as learning and memory, for key contexts of development such as family and civil society, for conceptions of self and identity, and for how the life course is partitioned including a focus on childhood and emerging adulthood.

With its inclusion of diverse life phases, diverse topics, and experts from diverse disciplines and cultures, the present book speaks to a broad range of developmental and cultural issues. The synthesis of cultural and developmental approaches should be exciting and eye-opening to anyone with an interest in human psychology in today's global world. --Résumé de l'éditeur.

This cutting-edge book brings together eminent experts who propose ways to bridge cultural and developmental approaches to human psychology. The experts heed the call of cultural psychology to study different peoples around the world and to recognize that culture profoundly impacts how we think, feel, and act.--[Source inconnue].
