In this volume Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger undertake a radical and imposant rethinking and reformulation of our conception of learning. By placing emphasis on the whole person, and by viewing agent, activity, and worid as mutually constitutive, they give us the opportunity to escape from the tyranny of the assumption that learning is the reception of factual knowledge or information. The authors arque that most accounts of learning have ignored its quintessentially social character. To make the crucial step away from a solely epistemological account of the person, they propose that learning is a process of participation in communities of practice, participation that is at first legitimately peripheral but that increases gradually in engagement and cornplexity.

Jean Lave, author of Cognition in Praetice: Mind, Mathematics, and Cul- ture in Everyday Life, is Professor of Education at the University of Califor- nia, Berkeley. Etienne Wenger is a research scientist at the lnstitute for Research on Learning, Palo Alto, and is the author of Artificial Intelligence and Tutoring Systems: Computational and Cognitive Approaches to the Communication of Knowledge.
