About the Authors
  • Three core ideas are at the heart of this book: relational expertise, the capacity to interpret problems with others; common knowledge, which consists of knowing what matters for professionals in other practices; and relational agency, which involves using that common knowledge to take action with others. These ideas are based in cultural-historical approaches to learning and change, and give coherence to the arguments presented. This is not a recipe book; the ideas are offered as resources for reflecting on and developing professional and research practices, and the conditions in which they occur.

    • The use of common concepts organized into three sections makes this a coherent read and points readers to areas of substantive interest
    • Offers a model of the Vygotskian idea that concepts are tools which are used to understand the world and are refined when they are used and reflected on
    • Ideas are tested in concrete settings, showing how useful they are as tools for understanding how people work together, and the mistakes that can be made if the ideas are not attended to
