Cognition, Intersubjectivity and Human Development

This topic will explore the relationships between language, cognition and society, by investigating the interactions between psychological and sociocultural factors  of meaning construction, as well as the processes and strategies by which language constructs a specific perspective on reality. Also the knowledge about basic processes – cognitive, emotional, psychosocial, psychobiological and behavioral processes -, by analyzing the role of sociodemographic, cultural and intersubjective factors on the conceptualization, explanation and promotion of healthy development. And, in the articulation between human development and human rights, exploring ways of promoting freedom, social responsibility, well-being and the person’s dignity.
