22 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These essays by leading theorists and researchers in sociocultural, cognitive, developmental, and educational psychology honor the memory of Sylvia Scribner, whose work is recognized by each of the authors as seminal to her own thinking. The themes include the relationship between history and culture, the importance of context to thinking, the place of literacy in human activity and thought, and cognition in school and in the workplace. The volume presents applications of Activity Theory to fundamental issues in human behavior at work, in school, and in problem solving situations, and it analyzes historical-societal processes in science and culture. Scribner's conviction that science holds a responsibility to human welfare and understanding is carried on in these chapters. Sociocultural Psychology is essential reading for researchers and graduate students in sociocultural, cognitive, developmental, and educational psychology

Mind and social practice : selected writings of Sylvia Scribner by Sylvia Scribner( Book )

9 editions published between 1990 and 1999 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mind and Social Practice brings together published and unpublished work from Sylvia Scribner's productive and wide-ranging career. The book includes a general introduction and five section introductions by the editors, placing Scribner's work within the framework of her life, her commitments, and the political and intellectual events of the times. Arranged chronologically, the volume illustrates how Scribner's work continually built upon and advanced earlier insights and explorations. Her later, more theoretically rich writing is enhanced by an appreciation of her earlier work. The book ends with a chronology of her life and a complete bibliography of her work. Because Scribner's work was wide-ranging, Mind and Social Practice will have wide appeal - in psychology, anthropology, education, labor studies, cognitive science, literary, African studies, and the history of science. Further, since the volume places her work in the narrative context of her life, her political commitments, and her influence on others, it will also engage feminist scholars and historians of ideas
