The theme of universals has attracted a great deal of research and speculation in the last decade. Psychologists and linguists in particular have attempted to identify substantive universals that underlie the social diversity across cultures which anthropologists have documented. These efforts are still inconclusive, and controversial, but have at least served to provide a necessary antidote to certain narrow forms of relativism and empiricism that had become current, and social scientists generally have a crucial interest in the success or failure of the attempt. The contributors to this volume all focus on the relevant data in Africa to explain and test the major questions at issue. The book is divided into three main sections, dealing respectively with perception, cognitive development and language. There is also a general review and prospectus by Jerome Bruner, and a wide-ranging introduction to the philosophical background by Ernest Gellner
