Wayne H. Brekhus is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Missouri.
"Brekhus provides an accessible and wide-ranging review of the culture and cognition field. His book introduces readers to a variety of intellectual approaches that culture and cognition scholars employ to better understand the sociocultural dimensions of thought." Karen Cerulo, Rutgers University "Brekhus has produced the most comprehensive, erudite, and conceptually sophisticated book in culture and cognition to date. Bound to set the terms of the theoretical debate in the field for a long time to come, this book is also a must read for anybody interested in familiarizing themselves with both the foundational contributions and the most recent cutting-edge work in the field." Omar Lizardo, University of Notre Dame
