Understanding Culture by Robert S. Wyer

Book Description

This volume contains contributions from 24 internationally known scholars covering a broad spectrum of interests in cross-cultural theory and research. This breadth is reflected in the diversity of the topics covered in the volume, which include theoretical approaches to cross-cultural research, the dimensions of national cultures and their measurement, ecological and economic foundations of culture, cognitive, perceptual and emotional manifestations of culture, and bicultural and intercultural processes. In addition to the individual chapters, the volume contains a dialog among 14 experts in the field on a number of issues of concern in cross-cultural research, including the relation of psychological studies of culture to national development and national policies, the relationship between macro structures of a society and shared cognitions, the integration of structural and process models into a coherent theory of culture, how personal experiences and cultural traditions give rise to intra-cultural variation, whether culture can be validly measured by self-reports, the new challenges that confront cultural psychology, and whether psychology should strive to eliminate culture as an explanatory variable.

Books By Author Robert S. Wyer

Social Comprehension and Judgment by Robert S. Wyer Social Comprehension and Judgment, Paperback (January 2013)

In examining how people process information encountered in their everyday lives, this title proposes a new theory about the way in which that information is comprehended and represented in memory, and how it is later used as a basis for judgments and decisions.

Perspectives on Behavioral Self-Regulation by Robert S. Wyer Perspectives on Behavioral Self-Regulation, Paperback (September 1999)

The "Advances in Social Cognition" series presents and evaluates theoretical advances in all areas of social cognition and information processing. A volume is devoted to each theory, offering evaluation from a variety of perspectives.

Automaticity of Everyday Life by Robert S. Wyer Automaticity of Everyday Life, Hardback (April 1997)

Addressing automaticity and how it relates to social behaviour, the lead article of this book argues that social psychology phenomena are essentially automatic in nature, as opposed to being mediated by conscious choice or reflection. The subsequent essays comment on this theory.
