'splendid book ... Rogoff even-handedly reviews the "laboratory" evidence for her mainstream mentors, but she is at her most compelling when she draws on her work with Mayan children in Guatemala. Barbara Rogoff has shared much, and there are lessons here for us all.' Hugh Fairweather, The Psychologist, December 1992Reseña del editor:
In this book, the author explores the mental developmental of children. unlike Piaget, Rogoff sees learning as an apprenticeship - a social activity that is mediated by parents and peers who support and challenge the child's understanding and skills. The author examines the dynamic relationship between thinking processes and the cultural context, gathering evidence from various areas. By integrating available evidence and her own research, Rogoff provides a coherent and broadly based account of cognitive development in the sociocultural context. Written in a provocative and engaging style, the text is supplemented by forty photographs and original drawings by the author.

Descripción Oxford University Press, 1991. Softcover. Estado de conservación: New. This interdisciplinary work presents an integration of theory and research on how children develop their thinking as they participate in cultural activity with the guidance and challenge of their caregivers and other companions. The author, a leading developmental psychologist, views development as an apprenticeship in which children engage in the use of intellectual tools in societally structured activities with parents, other adults, and children. The author has gathered evidence from various disciplines -- cognitive, developmental, and cultural psychology; anthropology; infancy studies; and communication research -- furnishing a coherent and broadly based account of cognitive development in its sociocultural context. This work examines the mutual roles of the individual and the sociocultural world, and the culturally based processes by which children appropriate andextend skill and understanding from their involvement in shared thinking with other people. The book is written in a lively and engaging style and is supplemented by photographs and original illustrations by the author. Barbara Rogoff is currently Professor of Psychology and Coordinator of the Developmental Psychology Program at the University of Utah. Barbara Rogoff's Apprenticeship in Thinking is a major contribution to the study of cognitive development because it builds sociocultural factors into theory and method from the outset.It goes a long way toward clarifying central debates in the field.This [is] the best account of a sociocultural approach to cognitive development we have to date. -- Science This is a thoughtful book that looks without flinching at most of the interpersonal problems that we have neglected in trying to understand how young human beings achieve their intellectual competence. -- Jerome S. Bruner, Research Professor of Psychology, New York University This book is essential reading for those who want to know about the most important intellectual theme in contemporary development psychology -- the role of the social context in cognitive development. Professor Rogoff's work is at the cutting edge of the social sciences. Her book admirably interweaves theory and illustrations. It is excellently documented, beautifully written, and thoroughly insightful. It is certain to be one of the most influential books in the field for years to come. -- Joseph J. Campos, Professor of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley Barbara Rogoff's Apprenticeship in Thinking is a very intelligent, sensitive, and scholarly piece of work. I believe Rogoff's book will play a significant role in defining the cutting edge of research for the coming generation of developmental psychologists. .[It] does a superb job of outlining a research program addressed to the developing child as a social being. -- Sheldon H.
