Social Psychology of Development as a Self-Valuable Branch of Psychological Science

1355

Abstract

Expediency of assigning social psychology of development as a separate branch of psychological science is discussed. Recognizing of such expediency is justified by the logic of development of psychological science; requirements of post-non-classical paradigm in psychology. The article deals with the contents and the subject-matter of social psychology of development, the problem of the method. Meta-system «personality — group — society», that should be regarded in the course of continuous and interrelated development of all its elements, is proposed as the subject-matter of social psychology of development in its broadest sense. The other existing approaches to understanding contents and domain boundaries of social psychology of development are analyzed. The described author's position is open for criticism and discussion; it may be regarded as an invitation to debate.
