By Gary S. Gregg

within the final fifteen years, psychologists have rediscovered tradition and its impact on emotion, concept, and self. Many researchers have come to the realization that the world's cultures could be ranked in response to the measure to which they're individualist or collectivist, with Western cultures falling on the individualist finish and non-Western cultures on the collectivist finish. those students argue that whereas individualist cultures supply upward push to "independent" selves, top Westerners to imagine and act autonomously, collectivist cultures foster "interdependent" selves, top non-Westerners, embedded in social-relationships, to imagine and act relationally.

Culture and id in a Muslim Society provides a substitute for the individualist- collectivist method of identification. in contrast to so much mental and anthropological reviews of tradition and self, Gary Gregg's paintings without delay investigates members, utilizing "study of lives"-style interviews with teenagers dwelling in villages and small cities in southern Morocco. interpreting those teens' life-narratives, Gregg builds a concept of tradition and identification that differs from winning mental and anthropological types in vital respects. unlike modernist theories of identification as unified, the life-narratives exhibit participants to articulate a small set of transferring identities. unlike post-modern theories that declare humans have a kaleidoscopic multiplicity of fluid identities, the narratives express that the identities are built-in by means of repeated use of culturally-specific self-symbols, metaphors, and story-plots. most significantly, the life-narratives convey those younger Moroccans' self-representations to be pervasively formed through the risky cultural fight among Western-style "modernity" and actual Muslim "tradition."

Offering a brand new method of the research of identification, the quantity can be of curiosity to cross-cultural psychologists, anthropologists, students of Middle-East societies, and researchers focusing on the research of lives.
