Culture and Cognition by Norbert O. Ross
Book DescriptionCulture plays an important role in our everyday lives, yet the study of cultural processes and their impact on thinking and behavior is still in its infancy. This brief core text fills a void in the cross-disciplinary area of culture and cognition by providing a clear overview of approaches from varying disciplinary perspectives, discussing methodological problems as well as theoretical implications of these approaches. In addition, it discusses some of the methods and statistical tools that have been developed recently to tackle theoretical problems with promising new research strategies.
