Summary: "The book consists of the 1989-90 Jerusalem-Harvard lectures divided into four chapters. The first, 'The Proper Study of Man,' is a critique of {what is seen as} the current antihistorical, anticultural bias of cognitive psychology, especially its information-processing model of the mind. 'Folk Psychology as an Instrument of Culture' asserts that culturally shaped notions, stories, and narratives organize experience and manage expectations. 'Entry into Meani
ng' views the beginnings of social understanding as a capacity to render experience in terms of narrative discourse. . . . Finally, 'Autobiography and Self' . . . {argues} that 'selves are not isolated nuclei of consciousness locked in the head, but are "distributed" interpersonally.'"(Library Journal) Index included.
