How do we account for variation in behaviors around the globe? What makes some societies more individual-oriented than others? What role is there for the individual self in the modern, globalizing world? Can culture alter our brain functions on an individual level? On a societal level? For decades, cultural psychologists worked from the assumption that the human mind operated the same everywhere, so that any differences in behaviors across societies was the result of culture. Steven Heine, one of the leading authorities on the "new" cultural psychology, takes us on an exploration of this cutting-edge field that reveals how today's cultural psychologists are trying to resolve these questions and deepen our understanding of how the human mind functions at the individual and societal levels.

Steven J. Heinenbsp;(Ph.D. University of British Columbia) is Professor of Psychology at the University of British Columbia. His research focuses on the role of culture in people's motivations to view themselves positively. He has published over thirty articles and written nine book chapters, including "Culture and Motivation," in the forthcoming Handbook of Cultural Psychology. He received the Distinguished Scientist Early Career Award for Social Psychology from the American Psychological Association in 2003 and the Early Career Award from the International Society of Self and Identity in 2002. He lives with his family in Vancouver.
