V. 2011 25 26 A. Stetsenko mechanistic and rigidly determined. Above all, this notion of human nature should be able to counter the now popular trend that severs it from culture, history, ideology, and politics and uses it to justify existing social order, eviscerate politics, and preclude social innovation. The critical task today is to reject the idea that nature is an incontestable “given” existing apart and independently from politics and culture and instead, to offer an alternative notion of human nature while being aware of its grounding in and implications for both science and politics.

As Lickliter and Honeycutt (2003c, p. 869) state: [P]henotypic traits are generated, not expressed, in development. In the language of developmental dynamics, form is an emergent property of the entire field of relationships within which the organism comes into being . . This dynamic and contingent account of trait generation underscores the key insight that understanding the mechanisms of development and evolution requires a relational concept of causality . . The influence of genes, neuronal architecture, the physical surround, or any other factor in development can be understood only in relation to the developmental system of which they are part (emphasis added).

For example, Vygotsky (1997, p. 100) challenged the view that development could be understood as a set of static, predetermined steps: Least of all does child development resemble a stereotypic process shielded from external influences; here [in child development], in a living adaptation to the outside milieu is the development and change of the child accomplished. In this process, ever newer forms arise, rather than the elements in the already preordained chain being simply stereotypically reproduced (emphasis added).
