Lifespan Development and the Brain: The Perspective of Biocultural Co-Constructivism by Paul B. Baltes (Repost)

Lifespan Development and the Brain: The Perspective of Biocultural Co-Constructivism by Paul B. Baltes (Repost)
Publisher: Cambridge University Press; 1 edition (June 19, 2006) | ISBN: 0521844940 | Pages: 444 | PDF | 13.63 MB

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.
