Coming Soon: Culture, Mind, and Brain edited volume

Human beings are biological and cultural beings – we live our lives in and through socially constructed worlds that vary widely in their architecture, social order, values, and aspirations, which reflect different histories and visions of the future. This volume is for general and academic audiences interested in acquiring a deeper and more textured understanding of who we are and who we are becoming, one that takes into account not only our biology but our immense cultural diversity, which shapes our experiences, psychologies, and imagination.
