About the Authors
  • John Ingham reviews developments in pyschological anthropology and argues for an eclectic approach that finds room for psychoanalytic, dialogical and social perspectives on personality and culture. The argument is developed with special reference to human nature, child development, personality, and mental disorder, and it draws on studies set in many different cultures. The author also shows the relevance of work in psychoanalysis and child development to current concerns in anthropology with agency and rhetoric.

    • State-of-the-art survey reviewing recent developments in the field
    • An important book which will make significant contribution to a growing area in anthropology
    • Well-written, accessible account which should appeal to upper-level students and graduates looking for synthesis
