Cultural practices as contexts for development( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can the concepts of culture and context be incorporated into accounts of development and research on development? This volume of New Directions for Child Development introduces approaches based on the notion of cultural practices; these are viewed as meaningful actions that occur routinely in everyday life, are widely shared by members of the group, and carry normative expectations about the way things should be done. To illustrate use of the concept, four of the chapters describe specific research studies, drawn from anthropology, psychology, and sociology. These are framed by a general introduction to the concept of cultural practices and a commentary on its connection to other concepts, such as activity and activity system

Various relevant issues are addressed in conceptually challenging ways, such as how consciousness and different forms of self-relevant experience develop in infancy and childhood and are related to the acquisition of skill; the role of the self in social development; the phenomenology of being conscious and its metapsychological implications; and the cultural foundations of conceptualizations of consciousness. Written by notable scholars in several areas of psychology, philosophy, cognitive neuroscience, and anthropology, the essays are of interest to readers from a variety of disciplines concerned with central, substantive questions in contemporary social science, and the humanities."--Provided by publisher

Expanding the boundaries of health and social science : case studies in interdisciplinary innovation by Social Science Research Council Staff( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation It is now widely recognized that research on human health requires more than a focus on human biology and disease entities. Lifestyles, attitudes, stress, education, income--all are now understood to contribute to the spread of disease, the effectiveness of curative therapies, and theprevention of illness, as well as to good health and an enhanced sense of well-being. However, despite such developments and the rise of interdisciplinary research, there is still considerable debate about how best to conduct research and shape policies that insightfully integrate concepts andmethods drawn from the full range of the health, social, and behavioral sciences. Moreover, scholars and researchers who wish to engage in such interdisciplinary inquiry have no texts that serve as substantive and practical guides to the most effective avenues. This volume fills this unfortunate gap by presenting a series of case studies that provide a variety of illustrative models of how best to undertake interdisciplinary research on health. All the authors have successfully carried out innovative, collaborative research programs; they give compellingaccounts of the benefits of interdisciplinary research, and the central strategies required for successfully achieving such benefits. This volume will be an invaluable resource for scholars and scientists, as well as for decision-makers in academic settings, foundations, and government agenciesseeking to develop and promote interdisciplinary programs that expand the boundaries of research dedicated to improving human health and well-being
Psychology, science, and human affairs : essays in honor of William Bevan( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These original essays, written by prominent scholars, pay tribute to the work of William Bevan. In the course of his distinguished career, Bevan has exhibited an almost unique capacity to focus a clear-eyed, critical gaze on operating assumptions and actions - his own and those of others - and to initiate consequential, constructive steps forward, both in his writing and in his deeds. Substantive contributions in their own right, these essays convey the range and reach of Bevan's ideas and influence. The authors examine central themes and issues that Bevan has addressed in his own work, such as the social and human dimensions of science; the nature-nuture controversy; cognition and psychodynamics; applications for clinical, forensic, and organizational psychology; behavioral science and the political process; and the problem of specialization and fragmentation within the discipline. Including an afterword by Bevan as well as one of his key essays, the book reveals how Bevan has placed landmarks and posed challenges across the landscape of psychological thought. Traversing this diverse terrain will be well worth the reader's time, for established scholars as well as for students in psychology and in other social science disciplines
