About the Authors
  • In a historical account of the development of cognitive anthropology, Roy D'Andrade examines how cultural knowledge is organized within and between human minds. He begins by examining research carried out in the 1950s and 1960s concerned with how different cultures classify kinship relationships and the natural environment, and then traces the development of more complex cognitive theories of classification in anthropology that took place in the 1970s and 1980s. Finally, current work involving cultural models, emotion, motivation, and action is considered, along with a cognitive perspective on the nature of culture.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This book will be a first-rate text for any course in cognitive anthropology and a fine supplement for survey courses in the cognitive sciences. It is also an important resource for professional anthropologists, and should be read by cognitive scientists..." Choice

    "...provides the best overview of cognitive anthropology we have to date....D'Andrade does a masterful and balanced job of presenting the contributions of a range of perspectives while making his own positions clear along the way....clear, authoritative, and useful....provides some important guideposts about how we might pursue a research agenda without reinventing too many wheels." James V. Wertsch, Contemporary Psychology
