AbstractThis review considers two books that pose the problems of postmodernism to the field of developmental psychology. Cultural Psychology explores the theoretical and methodological consequences of shifting focus to the meaning-filled intentional worlds of cultural agents. Apprenticeship in Thinking explores the role that social interactions play in socializing children into the varying demands and competencies of their culture. The review focuses on the differences between these agentive and structural-material views of cognitive socialization.
