This book aims to understand the psycho-social dynamics of forming long-term collaborations and creative partnership—intellectual and artistic collaboration and co-construction of knowledge—that is part of a broader grasp of a cultural-historical project in human sciences. Through general observations of long-term collaborations, interviews, Q-sort commentaries, and biographical information, the book has developed theoretical approaches and models explaining collaboration. In addition it is useful to identify emotional and cognitive collaborative dynamics or to undermine long-term success and to document how experienced thinkers engage in joint efforts in a societal culture geared towards individual achievement. In the context of the dynamic interdependence, the research in this book stresses on Vygotsky's culture-historical psychology and feminist theory.
