Introduction: Diversity Not Uniformity



Abstract This introduction endeavors to place Anthony F. C. Wallace's contributions to psychological anthropology in historical and disciplinary context. His theoretical and methodological advances led to the emergence of a more empirically oriented field of endeavor that is more properly designated psychological anthropology, rather than culture and personality. The four articles that compose this issue make effective use of Wallace's conception of “organization of diversity” and illustrate its utility across a wide range of issues. [Anthony F. C.
