Agency and Context in Cultural Psychology: Implications for Moral Theory.
Miller, Joan G.
New Directions for Child Development, n76 p69-85 Sum 1997
Critiques studies of moral development and culture in light of key assumptions of cultural psychology with regard to culturally mediated contexts, the coherence and complexity of cultures, and agency in a culturally grounded self. Argues that the challenge remains to retain concern with agency and context sensitivity, while giving weight to the impact of enculturation on self-development. (Author)
