9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Besides focusing on the social foundation of cognition, Interactive Minds takes a life-span perspective, which is especially suitable for understanding interactive dynamics of behavior and human development. Each of the authors deals with a different topic and each presents a clear analysis of the basic dimensions of the problem. Among the issues addressed are biological-evolutionary aspects of cooperation, the role of social interaction in learning, the conceptualization of linguistic knowledge, peer problem solving, the psychological study of wisdom, gender dynamics, collaborative memory in adults and the elderly, cooperative construction of expert knowledge, and communities of practice in university study
Life-span developmental psychology : introduction to research methods by Paul B Baltes( Book )

27 editions published between 1977 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are the changes we see over the life-span? How can we explain them? And how do we account for individual differences? This volume continues to examine these questions and to report advances in empirical research within life-span development increasing its interdisciplinary nature. The relationships between individual development, social context, and historical change are salient issues discussed in this volume, as are nonnormative and atypical events contributing to life-span change

26 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present and future of our society are shaped by an ever-increasing proportion of old and very old people. The Berlin Aging Study is one of the largest interdisciplinary efforts to explore old age and aging. Unique aspects of the Berlin Aging Study are the spectrum of scientific disciplines involved, the range of discipline-specific and interdisciplinary research topics, the focus on very old age (70 to over 100 years), and the empirical reference to a representative heterogenous urban population."--Jacket
Aging successfully : psychological aspects of growing old by Paul B Baltes( Visual )

15 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Developmental psychologists Paul and Margret Baltes have proposed a model of adaptive competence for the entire life span, but the emphasis here is on old age.

10 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lifespan development and the brain : the perspective of biocultural co-constructivism by Paul B Baltes( Book )

24 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on the developmental analysis of brain-culture-environment dynamics and argues that this dynamic is interactive and reciprocal; brain and culture co-determine each other. As a whole, this book refutes any unidirectional conception of the brain-culture dynamic, as each is influenced by and modifies the other. To capture the ubiquitous reach and significance of the mutually dependent and co-productive brain-culture system, the metaphor of biocultural co-constructivism is invoked. Distinguished researchers from cognitive neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and developmental psychology review the evidence in their respective fields. A special focus of the book is its coverage of the entire human lifespan."--Jacket
