John Turner is a social psychologist who, along with colleagues, developed the self-categorization theory. Amongst other things the theory states that the self is not a foundational aspect of cognition, but rather that the self is an outcome of cognitive processes and an interaction between the person and the social context.[1] Self categorization theory was developed as a companion theory to the Social identity theory,[2] and the two theories taken together are known as the social identity approach.
