Course Description: Cross-cultural psychology examines what is basic about human nature and what emerges as different depending on people‚Äôs culture. It critically evaluates the generality of knowledge from mainstream psychology and covers a wide range of topics. This course provides a thorough introduction to cross-cultural psychology by focusing on three central overlapping aspects within the discipline. First, the basic epistemological and methodological questions are explored. For instance, whether people from different cultures can be meaningfully compared, how such comparisons should be carried out, and how culture can be operationalized. Second, several explanations for understanding (the impact of) cultural differences are considered, and the cross-cultural validity of mainstream psychology theories are evaluated. In doing so, a variety of topics are addressed, including child-rearing, self-perception, personality, and moral reasoning. Finally, contacts between members of different cultures are studied. Prerequisite for this course is an introductory psychology course.
