About the Book :

This compendium of twenty papers attempts to examine the relationship between culture, cognition and behaviour. Explaining the concept of culture, it deals with the developmental and acculturative influences on categorization behaviour of Kharwar children, spatial cognition of children in Nepal, linguistic profile of Kumaun and the dynamics of educational development. Unveiling the relationship between culture and personality, the contributors also deliberate on the familial and social factors that determine the character of Kumaunies, social identity awareness in Hindu and Muslim children, and linkage between mind and languages. The relationship between culture and health has been analyzed as well.
