Cultural psychologists have tended to view culture as not only interpretable but meaningfully operational with regard to human behavior through empirical means. The papers in this special issue exemplify one way of thinking about the relationship between culture and science. They apply knowledge about cultural variation to research findings on children's mental disorders. The purpose of the essays is to look for the common horizon connecting cultures, to recognize that each culture sets its own linguistical limits on experience; that rates of disorders based upon diagnostic systems, when viewed through a cultural lens, automatically take into account that a diagnosis is an interpretation and interpretations are meaning-based, thus language-based; and, finally, that language can close the distance between different cultures or it can perpetually restrict our vision.
