Reflections on the diversity of knowledge: power and dialogue in representational fields

By Sandra Jovchelovitch

Abstract

Traditional psychology has long been concerned with cognition, motivation, emotion, and the mind in general?the mind being held responsible for individual behavior in society?and scholars of social and cultural psychology have worked in relative isolation. Meaning in Action is a bold departure as it places culture at the center of human functioning and posits that it is not the independent mind that gives rise to human action but participation in a world of socially created meanings. Each chapter illuminates the socially grounded view of the individual.This chapter addresses how different representations and the knowledge systems they enable meet and communicate in public spheres
