Moving through three paradigms, yet remaining the same thinker
Abstract:The author reflects on his scientific and professional career as it developed over 40 years. Partly as an autobiographical sketch, he describes three phases, each guided by a specific paradigm: individual differences, narrative, and dialogical. Looking back at the different phases, the author emphasizes the non-linear nature of his development, in which the preceding phases merged into the next one, resulting in complex combinations of old and new elements.
