Summary
"Most psychology research still assumes that mental processes are internal to the person, waiting to be expressed or activated. This book demonstrates that a new paradigm is forming in which contextual factors are central to the workings of the mind. Leading experts explore how psychological processes emerge from the transactions of individuals with their physical, social, and cultural environments. The result is a picture of the mind as highly malleable and adaptive to the constraints and potentialities of its context, rather than as self-contained and preprogrammed."--BOOK JACKET
