MULTI-CULTURAL EDUCATION AS VIEWED FROM THE ANGLE OF CULTURAL PSYCHOLOGY: Jaan Valsiner

Public Lecture at University of Luxembourg, Walferdange– 25. May 2010, 16-18 hrs

CULTURAL PSYCHOLOGY– a renewed perspective within psychology that emerged in the 1990s and that looks at HIGHER MENTAL PROCESSES in their SOCIAL CONTEXTS

Key recent roots: Lev Vygotsky, George H. Mead, Karl Buehler, Mikhail Bakhtin, Ernest E. Boesch– INTERDISCIPLINARY CROWD

Key ancient roots: Wilhelm von Humboldt, Moritz Lazarus, Hajim Steinthal, Wilhelm Wundt (his Voelkerpsychologie), C.S. Peirce– also for the 19th century an interdisciplinary group (but DISCIPLINES then were NOT YET STRICTLY LIMITED)

Key contemporary disciplinary opponents (Gegenstand): cognitive psychology, cross-cultural psychology

Key contemporary fields of application: education, international business, communication

CULTURAL PSYCHOLOGY IS NOT A HOMOGENEOUS FIELD BUT A GENERIC LABEL FOR A NUMBER OF DISTINCT PARALLEL PERSPECTIVES THAT CO-EXIST (BUT ARE NOT NECESSARILY INTEGRATED) IN OUR PRESENT TIME
