"Psychological anthropology is concerned with subjective and sociocultural worlds and with the interplay between them. Scholars in psychological anthropology examine social and cultural influences on individual psychology and the psychological foundations of social behavior and shared culture."

John M. Ingham, p. 1. Psychological Anthropology Reconsidered. Cambridge University Press, 1996.
