Does Culture Matter?
Barrett, David E.
Society, v40 n1 p92-96 Nov-Dec 2002
Objects to current preoccupations with culture (particularly race) in psychology and education, suggesting that it is unethical to let culture influence decision making. Notes the paucity of empirical evidence of statistical interactions between treatment and culture in psychotherapy or teaching and culture in education. Concludes that without evidence to the contrary, the laws governing behaviors of both objects and persons are the same for everyone, cultural diversity notwithstanding. (SM)
