'This is an extraordinary collection written by leaders in psychological anthropology, social psychology, and ‘cultural neuroscience’. It presents state-of-the-art research dedicated to understanding the interaction of mind, brain, and culture.'
Melvin Konner - Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor of Anthropology, Emory University
'The question of how culture and the brain interact to shape the mind is one of the great questions of our time. This thoughtful collection demonstrates that interdisciplinary collaboration is crucial to any good answer to such a question.'
Tanya Luhrmann - Howard H. and Jessie T. Watkins University Professor of Anthropology, Stanford University
'At this scientific smorgasbord, you'll whet your appetite on rich intellectual histories prepared by those who lived them. Then, feast on a heaping helping of the latest ideas about how minds, brains, and cultures co-constitute themselves. Finally, relax while taking in wide-ranging literature reviews on the latest findings in neuroscience, anthropology, psychology and other relevant fields.'
Joe Henrich - Chair of the Department of Human Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University
'I was just getting used to the age of enactivism. It is now clear that attention to culture will bring the next paradigm shift. This book is a great foundational resource. It foreshadows the way we are going to think about ourselves in the next decade - gracefully spanning from dopamine receptors to the extended evolutionary synthesis, from connectomes to predictive processing. In short, all our favourite things are here - and are woven together beautifully.'
