Culture Acquisition: A Holistic Approach to Human Learning

Synopsis

Challenging traditional orientations to the study of education and culture acquisition, the authors of this controversial work present a holistic, process-oriented method for examining culture transmission. Their work defines the biological parameters of culture learning, reviews previous research on cultural transmission, conceptualizes, operationalizes, and tests a holistic, context-specific approach to learning culture and then illustrates its use. Advanced students and scholars of anthropology, as well as qualitative educational researchers, will find this to be invaluable.
