Joint Action: Essays in honour of John Shotter brings together a cross-disciplinary group of fifteen respected international scholars to explain the relevance of John Shotter's work to emerging concerns in twenty-first century social science. Shotter's work extends over forty years and continues to challenge conventional scientific thinking across a range of topics. The disciplines and practices that Shotter's work has informed are well established throughout the English-speaking world. This is the first publication to examine the importance of his influence in contemporary social sciences and it includes authoritative discussions on topics such as social constructionism, democratic practice, organisational change, the affective turn and human relations. The geographical diversity and disciplinary breadth of scholarly contributions imbues the book 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 researchers and postgraduate students 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.
