Department of Comparative Cultural Psychology
Director: Prof. Dr. Daniel Haun
The Department of Comparative Cultural Psychology combines approaches from developmental, cross-cultural and comparative psychology, to study uniquely human cultural diversity and the universal cognitive mechanisms that enable and constrain it.
We study the interaction between human cognition and culture by studying individuals in different social and physical environments around the world.
We study uniquely human cognitive processes by comparing humans with other great ape species.
We study similarities and differences in cognitive development and their inter-individual and inter-cultural drivers in human and non-human great apes.
