About this Book

Culture as Embodiment utilizes recent insights in psychology, cognitive, and affective science to reveal the cultural patterning of behavior in group-related practices.

  • Applies the best of the behavioural sciences to contemporary issues of behavioural cross-fertilization in global exchange
  • Presents an original theory to be used in the gender and integration debates, about what the acceptance of newcomers from different cultural backgrounds really entails
  • Presents a theory that is also applicable to youth culture and the split in modern society between underclass, modal class, and the elite
  • Contains an original approach to the persistence of religion, and relates religious thought to the cognitive capacity of generic belief
