Taking an interdisciplinary approach, this book brings together the work of researchers in anthropology, cognitive and developmental psychology, biology, and philosophy of science. Chapters present the current foundations of folkbiology and indicate new directions in research.
Scott Atran is Research Director in Anthropology at France's National Center for Scientific Research and Visiting Professor of Psychology and Public Policy at the University of Michigan. He is the coeditor, with Douglas Medin, of Folkbiology (MIT Press, 1999).
Folk Biology is an excellent collection of original articles that will be a great aid to scholars and students interested in anthropological and psychological aspects of ethnobiology. --Ronald W. Casson, Department of Anthropology, Oberlin College
