Abstract and Keywords

In this chapter, the notion of the other in the self is proposed as a triple holistic developmental structure. This proposal aims to account for aspects that have not been considered for understanding the constitution and maintenance of the self–other–culture processual structure yet. The structure here proposed is a derivation of Herbst's (1995) model of co-genetic logic. Additionally, it takes the self as an actional self (Boesch, 1991) dialogically oriented by the other (Marková, 2003; Linell, 2009). From this perspective, self–other interactions are approached under the focus of how the triple holistic developmental structure tacitly (Polanyi, 1966/2009) constrains (Valsiner,1998) them in a feed-forward process. In this dynamics, new forms of cultural fields for symbolic actions (Boesch, 1991) can emerge. Some concluding issues, an illustrative analysis, and some future developments concerning the triple holistic developmental structure approaching the other in the self are also presented.

Keywords: triple holistic developmental structure, self, other, culture, actional self, dialogism, constraints
