What is the role of "Culture" for conceptualization in Political Psychology?: Presentation of a dialogical model of lay thinking in two cultural contexts

Abstract : This paper is discussing the role of conceptualization in political psychology and the limits that the notion of culture imposes: is it possible to construct "useful" theoretical models that offer new perspectives? What is their scope and possibility for generalization? I suggest a dialogical model of lay thinking that is grounded on a longitudinal study (from 2000 to 2010) regarding the social representation of Greek Youth for democracy (Magioglou 2008; 2013). This model, and the research method adopted, have been constructed for the Greek context, as a result of the interaction between field work, data analysis and the conceptual tools available at the time. It is then tried for a different study and context: that of the commentaries left on line after the articles of three major French newspapers (Le Monde, Le Figaro, Libération), from 2009 to 2010 considering the case of the arrest, trial and liberation of a French citizen in Iran, with the accusation of being a spy, after the elections of 2009.
