What is Anthropological Psychology?
Anthropological psychology in relation to general psychology
The object of general psychology is to investigate what it means to say that
a given phenomenon is psychic; to identify, in other words, those
characteristics which distinguish psychic phenomena from those that are
non-psychic. One area within general psychology deals in particular with the
human psyche and with those features that distinguish it; on the one hand
from artificially produced (or, for that matter, potential extraterrestrial)
psyches, and, on the other, from the animal psyche at all levels — from
primitive early forms to the highly advanced mammals and primates, such
as the bonobos whose psyches closely resemble our own.
