An Invitation to Cultural Psychology represents an invitation to look at the everyday life worlds of human beings through the lens of a new synthetic perspective in cultural psychology -- that of semiotic dynamics. Based on historical work from many different fields in the social and behavioural sciences, and the humanities too, this perspective applied to cultural psychology suggests that human beings are constantly creating, maintaining and abandoning hierarchies of meanings within all cultural contexts they experience. It's a perspective that leans heavily on the work of the great French philosopher, Henri Bergson, yet now only being realised as a core basis for human cultural living. The author, Jaan Valsiner, is the founding editor of a major journal in the field, Culture & Psychology. Having spent the previous 30+ years in the USA he is shortly to become the first Niels Bohr Professor of Cultural Psychology at Aalborg University in Denmark.
