ANT406 Culture, Self & Meaning

One can conceive of culture as "whatever it is one has to know or believe in order to act in a way that the members of that society consider appropriate." How we process, store and use our knowledge to act in the world is the subject matter of this course. We investigate the feedback relations between the mind and culture by examining how people of different cultures use cognitive processes to make sense of their lives and the world they live in.
