Overview

Sociogenesis Reexamined offers the foundation for an inter- disciplinary social scientific approach towards the development of persons in their historical and societal contexts. The editors have organized herein the opportunity for exchange and theoretical confrontation on the theme of mechanisms in sociogenesis. Stemming from a workshop that took place at the Rijksuniversiteit Utrecht in December 1990, the editors and contributors attempt to begin the refinement and reworking of the concept of sociogenesis. Two possible branches in the definition of sociogenesis are presented in the introduction as a useful guide in mapping existing approaches. The text is then divided into four parts: theoretical and historical foundations; new conceptual approaches; analysis of existing frameworks; empirical case studies. Systematic perspectives for research in the field are offered. For developmental and social psychologists, anthropologists, researchers and graduate students, this groundbreaking work will surely initiate much elaboration and innovation in the study of sociogenesis.
