Abstract

This peer-reviewed, selected and edited collection of chapters provides the reader interested in international developments in theoretical psychology with a snap shot of some of the global transformations and challenges facing the discipline. In addition to reflections on the nature of theoretical psychology and its applications, the volume includes contributions dealing with links between Chinese and Western theoretical psychology, and with the promises of process thinking for psychological research. Other substantive issues covered include the relationship between organic evolution and culture, the psychodynamics of identity and difference, the psychological politics of power, mediated activities of knowing and remembering, and the affective and embodied nature of thought and action.
