We follow the interests and career of John Shotter as we accompany him through stories of his developmental years. Starting out as an engineer and with a strong interest in mathematics we learn from him how he evolved to his current interests and work on language, relationships and meaning.
The influences of Vygotsky, Vico, Bakhtin and Wittgenstein are clearly described. The passion that he feels in working for the rights of downtrodden or neglected populations becomes evident through this very warm conversation about his life and work.
