About the Authors
  • The essays in this volume, first published in 2001, focus upon the relationship of individual experience to culture, and chart a research agenda for psychological anthropology in the twenty-first century. Drawing upon fieldwork in diverse cultural settings, the authors use a range of contemporary perspectives in the field, including person-centred ethnography, activity theory, attachment theory and cultural schema theory, to describe the ways in which people think, feel, remember, and solve problems. Fascinating insights emerge from these fine-grained accounts of personal experience. The research demonstrates that it is possible to identify cross-cultural universals in psychological development and mental states, and that individual psychology is not determined solely by unique cultural patterns.

    • Articulates an important research agenda for psychological anthropology
    • Reasserts the strengths of the field that pioneered the study of individual experience and its relationship to culture
    • Draws upon empirical fieldwork in diverse cultural settings
