CHOICE Review

This book covers issues that are both significant and somewhat new. The study of people's feelings, actions, and thought processes in a culture, "indigenous psychology" uses data-gathering techniques and concepts coming from that culture and ideally carried out by researchers who are native to the culture. Indigenous psychology differs from cultural psychology, cross-cultural psychology, and cultural anthropology, although it overlaps with these fields a bit. Most of the contributors to the present volume--which covers Poland, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Mexico, the Philippines, Greece, Canada, and India--would like these indigenous psychologies to lead to a universal psychology. Several early chapters denigrate Western (particularly American) psychology, conflating it with imperialism and arguing that it is not a universal psychology. The book's first section, "Theoretical and Methodological Issues," advocates the use of the constructive realism theory of Austrian philosopher of science Fritz Wallner, who cowrote one chapter. The remaining four sections are "Family and Socialization," "Cognitive Processes," "Self and Personality," and "Application," and among the subjects treated are humanism-materialism, paternalism, Confucianism, Taoism, and Hinduism. This book fits best in the literature of anthropology. ^BSumming Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty. R. W. Smith emeritus, California State University, Northridge
