This suggests that a comprehensive definition should also signal cultural change (which often results from contact between cultures), an aspect that will be considered more fully in Chapter 13. We are now in a position to propose a general definition of cross-cultural psychology that will be used in this book: Cross-cultural psychology is the study: of similarities and differences in individual psychological functioning in various cultural and ethnocultural groups; of ongoing changes in variables reflecting such functioning; and of the relationships of psychological variables with sociocultural, ecological and biological variables.

This brings us to the question of how far proximal biological variables, including, for example, dietary habits, nutritional deficiencies and distal biological variables, including the phylogenetic roots of the human capacity to develop culture, should be included in cross-cultural psychology (see Chapter 11). Related to this evolutionary view of culture as human adaptation to the environment, there are other kinds of contextual variables (not always included in the conception of culture) that have been considered to be part of the cross-cultural enterprise.

Are they the most important themes of debate? A reader with prior knowledge of cross-cultural psychology may be surprised to find that the dichotomy between nature and nurture is not mentioned as one of the themes. There is certainly much debate on theories addressing the extent to which psychological functioning is constrained by our genetic constitution, and how variation can emerge in the course of developmental processes. However, the arguments about nature–nurture have shifted to specific models and theories; the old dichotomy of body and soul, or genetic versus environmental as separate sources of variance largely has been left behind.
