Commentary: Beyond individualism and collectivism—A problem, or progress?

Authors


Abstract

Although the constructs of individualism and collectivism appear to bring explanatory power to analyses of culture and psychology, they fail to adequately account for the complexities of social interactions and the multiplicity of people's social judgments. The research considered in the chapters in this volume offers evidence for the need to go beyond the stereotyping of cultures as individualistic or collectivistic.
