Description - Mind and Social Practice by Sylvia Scribner
Sylvia Scribner's contributions to the emergent field of cultural psychology have been monumental. Her studies of reasoning and thinking within contexts of culture and activity added new concepts, methods, and findings to what many now consider a distinctive branch of psychology. Mind and Social Practice brings together published and unpublished work from Sylvia Scribner's wide-ranging and prolific career. The book is arranged chronologically and includes five section introductions by the editors, placing Scribner's work in the context of her life, her commitments, and the political and intellectual events of the times. This authoritative text will appeal to researchers in cognitive, work, and educational psychology, as well as anthropologists.
