Joint Action: Essays in honour of John Shotter (PDF) brings together a cross-disciplinary group of 15 respected international scholars to explain the relevance of John Shotter’s work to emerging concerns in 21st century social science.
John Shotter’s work extends over 40 years and continues to challenge conventional scientific thinking across a range of topics. The practices and disciplines that Shotter’s work has informed are well established throughout the English-speaking world. This is the 1st publication to examine the importance of his influence in contemporary social sciences and it includes authoritative discussions on topics such as democratic practice, social constructionism, organisational change, the affective turn and human relations. The geographical diversity and disciplinary breadth of scholarly contributions imbues the ebook with international scope and reach.
Joint Action presents a contemporary reflection on Shotter’s work that demonstrates its influence across a range of substantive topics and practical endeavours and within disciplines including management studies and philosophy as well as psychology. As such, it will appeal to postgraduate students and researchers of social sciences and related disciplines, as well as to those who have heard of Shotter’s work and want to know more about its utility and value in relation to their own research or practice.
