Development of Self in Culture

Edited by: Kristine de Lopez, Tia G.B. Hansen

Human beings are inherently cultural beings, growing up in an environment that is steeped in culture and developing our self-construal accordingly. A new psychology book series - Self in Culture in Mind (SICIM) - by Aalborg University Press gathers current research perspectives on this issue. The first volume, Development of Self in Culture, sets the stage by examining the unfolding of self from a broad range of developmental perspectives. Each chapter suggests a specific theoretical approach and provides original research that document culturally-mediated development at different stages of life and in different cultural settings, as observed by appropriate scientific methods.
