Commentary: No Itinerant Researchers Tolerated: Principled and Ethical Perspectives and Research with North American Indian CommunitiesEthos: Journal of the Society for Psychological Anthropology (2008)
The core themes and content of the four articles featured in this special section of Ethos brings to mind a noteworthy quotation offered by Margaret Mead in reference to Columbia University's William Fielding Ogburn's approach to the study of humankind; Ogburn was one of Mead's graduate school professors at Columbia. Specifically, Ogburn claimed that one should “never look for a psychological explanation unless every effort to find a cultural one has been exhausted”.
