Laboratory of Comparative Human Cognition

About Us

We are a community of interdisciplinary scholars who share an interest in the study of human mind in its cultural and historical contexts. We seek to resolve theoretical and methodological problems associated with scholarly approaches that place culture and activity at the center of attempts to understand human nature with a particular focus on the sources of, and solutions to, problems of social inequality. Our participants come from many countries and represent a variety of academic disciplines, including anthropology, cognitive science, education, history, linguistics, psychology and sociology.
