Abstract In this introduction to the Ethos 2011 Dialogue the guest editors discuss questions related to child and youth development as seen from a cultural-historical and critical psychological point of view. The authors contributing to the dialogue develop a particular focus on the notions of mediation, practice, and active subjectivity while examining a series of conflictual cases of child and youth development. We seek here to introduce this work as it advances the long existing dialogue among cultural-historical, critical psychological, and anthropological approaches and anthropological theory thus suggesting directions for future research.
