Culture in Mind is an ethnographic portrait of the human mind. Using case studies from both western and nonwestern societies. Shore argues that "cultural models" are necessary to the functioning of the human mind. Drawing on recent developments in cognitive science as well as anthropology, Culture in Mind explores the cognitive world of culture in the ongoing production of meaning in everyday thinking and feeling.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Owing to the text's multidisciplinary eloquence and to the central role psychological factors are given, Culture in Mind is of tremendous relevance to psychologists in general, but most particularly to culturally minded psychologists. Shore not only touches upon aspects related to the problematic relation psychologists have with utilizing the term 'culture' in their work, he also provides theoretical solutions and a source of inspiration for those courageous enough to assume such a personally and intellectially enriching venture. * Culture & Psychology, vol. 6(4) *
Culture in Mind is breathtakingly multidisciplinary and scholarly. In his discussions, Shore exposes models from various disciplines in a way that is likely to enrich readers coming from a number of different academic backgrounds. For example, by bringing culture to the more cognitive sides of mind, the book creates a dialogue between anthropologist and psychologist. * Culture & Psychology, vol. 6(4) *
