SpringerBriefs in Theoretical Advances in Psychology

Series Editor: Jaan Valsiner

The aim of SpringerBriefs in Theoretical Advances in Psychology is to give the international and interdisciplinary readership direct access to specifically theoretical innovations. Each book will provide a clear, multi-sided description of the theoretical efforts of scholars around the world. “Psychology has been lost in the collection of zillions of locally relevant empirical data over the last century, and there has been little support for constructing general theories,” said Dr. Jaan Valsiner, editor of the series. “With this new series, we have a unifying standard bearer for the innovation of the theoretical realm of our science."

SpringerBriefs in Psychology and Cultural Developmental Science

Series Editors: Jaan Valsiner and Pina Marsico

SpringerBriefs in Psychology and Cultural Developmental Science is the first series to focus on the interconnection between cultural psychology and other developmental sciences, such as biology, sociology, philosophy, anthropology, and education. The series will include compact books that offer a perspective on the current state of developmental science, addressing contemporary issues and reflecting on theoretical and empirical directions as well as providing constructive insights into future pathways. Series editor Dr. Pina Marsico said,“This series integrates knowledge from many fields in a novel and innovative synthesis. It sets the stage for a forum of scholarly interchanges that deal with the science of the highest psychological functions of human beings.” Both SpringerBriefs series will include additional commentary from researchers, to facilitate further discussion.
