Cultural Epistemologies and Reasoning about the Natural World

This talk concerns relationships between different ways of looking at the world (epistemologies) and other cognitive processes such as categorization and reasoning. The focus will be specifically on Native American relational epistemologies and biological cognition, including complex systems reasoning. The relevant data come from analyses of cultural artifacts, developmental studies and adult Native, Non-Native contrasts.
