This volume discusses the interface between human development and socio-cultural processes by exploring the writings of Gerard Duveen, an internationally renowned figure, whose untimely death left a void in the fields of socio-developmental psychology, cultural psychology, and research into social representations.

Duveen's original and comprehensive approach continues to offer fresh insight into core theoretical, methodological and empirical problems in contemporary psychology. In this collection the editors have carefully selected Duveen's most significant papers to demonstrate the innovative nature of his contribution to developmental, social and cultural psychology.

Divided into three sections, the book includes:

Duveen's engagement with Jean Piaget

the role of social life in human development and the making of cognition

social representations and social identities

Introduced with chapters from Serge Moscovici, Sandra Jovchelovitch and Brady Wagoner, this book presents previously unpublished papers, as well as chapters available here in English for the first time. It will be essential reading for those studying high level developmental psychology, educational psychology, social psychology, and cultural psychology.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`Through a carefully selected set of essays, the editors have created a marvelous Symposium, conducted by the late Gerald Duveen, where he, Piaget, Moscovici, Vygotsky and Bartlett explore the need for a synthetic approach to the nature of human development. A challenging and rewarding reading experience that taught me a lot' - Professor Michael Cole, Director of Laboratory for Comparative Human Cognition, University of California San Diego

`Gerard Duveen was a remarkable scholar who developed an original conceptual approach linking together developmental, cultural and social psychology. In this volume the editors present Duveen's critical engagement with Piaget's and Moscovici's theories and his original thought in advancing difficult concepts like decentration, social representations, identities, beliefs and doubts, among many others. The volume, building on intellectual scholarship of the highest standard, will be inspirational for researchers in human and social sciences' - Ivana Markova, Emeritus Professor in Psychology, University of Stirling
