Abstract

The relationships between individuals and between individuals and contexts have been studied extensively in cultural psychology as well as in several other disciplines. This commentary attempts to discuss the roles of autonomy and relatedness in these relationships while preserving meaning in the cultural context. It explores further the nature of the constructs as domain-specific, situational, and relative, as well as the concept of choice in terms of the process of choosing and limitations. The potential disparities in events as they are experienced and as they are explained are both considered, together with the construction of meaning. Situational behaviors as related to varying circumstances and social contexts are also reflected on. Finally, autonomy and relatedness are reconsidered within the sociological network, in which the individual systems at the psycho-logics level interact with the functions at the socio-logics level.
