Product Description:

'Scaffolding' is a concept that is becoming widely used across disciplines. This book investigates common threads in diverse applications of scaffolding including theoretical biology cognitive science social theory science and technology studies and human development. Despite its widespread use the concept of scaffolding is often given short shrift; the contributors to this volume from a range of disciplines offer a more fully developed analysis of scaffolding that highlights the role of temporal and temporary resources in development broadly conceived across concepts of culture cognition and evolution. The book emphasizes reproduction repeated assembly and entrenchment of heterogeneous relations parts and processes as a complement to neo-Darwinism in the developmentalist tradition of conceptualizing evolutionary change. After describing an integration of theoretical perspectives that can accommodate different levels of analysis and connect various methodologies the book discusses multilevel organization; differences (and reciprocality) between individuals and institutions as units of analysis; and perspectives on development that span brains careers corporations and cultural cycles.
