Peterson’s Invited Paper on Epistemology and Aging in Press

Clinical faculty member Roger Peterson, PhD, and student, Kate Lambos, have an article in press.

Peterson, R. L., &  Lambos, K. A. (In press).  A sociocultural-constructionist epistemology for the psychology of aging. Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Psychology.

This paper describes a sociocultural-constructionist epistemology that stands alongside more traditional psychology epistemologies for the study of aging.  This position is more-directly relevant to practice. It emphasizes “local” and levels of local knowledge, Bruner’s ideas on cultural psychology, and how culture is embedded in narrative. Kate Lambos, a particularly talented student, worked closely with Roger on this paper.
