Handbook of Dialogical Self Theory free pdf In a boundary-crossing and globalizing world, the personal and social positions in self and identity become increasingly dense, heterogeneous and even conflicting. In this handbook scholars of different disciplines, nations and cultures (East and West) bring together their views and applications of dialogical self theory in such a way that deeper commonalities are brought to the surface. As a 'bridging theory', dialogical self theory reveals unexpected links between a broad variety of phenomena, such as self and identity problems in education and psychotherapy, multicultural identities, child-rearing practices, adult development, consumer behaviour, the use of the internet and the value of silence. Researchers and practitioners present different methods of investigation, both qualitative and quantitative, and also highlight applications of dialogical self theory.

About Hubert J. M. Hermans

Hubert J. M. Hermans studied psychology at the University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands. His dissertation (1967) was on motivation and achievement and resulted in two psychological tests: the Achievement Motivation Test for Adults and the Achievement Motivation Test for Children. In 1973 he became Associate Professor of Psychology, and in 1980 Full Professor, at the University of Nijmegen. As a reaction to the static and impersonal nature of psychological tests, he developed the Self-Confrontation Method. Application of this method in practice led to the establishment of the Dutch Association for SCM Consultants which counted 300 members in 2010. In the 1990s, he developed Dialogical Self Theory (DST), inspired by the American pragmatism of William James and the dialogical school of the Russian literary scholar Mikhail Bakhtin. Since 2002 he has been president of the International Society for Dialogical Science (ISDS) and since 2006 editor-in-chief of the International Journal for Dialogical Science (IJDS). He is the initiator of the biennial International Conferences on the Dialogical Self and his theories and methods are applied worldwide. He is co-author of Dialogical Self Theory (2010). Nine special issues of scientific psychological journals are devoted to his work. Thorsten Gieser received his MA in Social Anthropology and Religious Studies from the University of Heidelberg, Germany and attained his PhD in Social Anthropology at the University of Aberdeen, UK. He is an independent scholar and Fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute with a particular interest in the cultural phenomenology of intersubjective experience, perception, embodiment and empathy.
