The early developmentalists investigated age differences in essentialist thinking with little thought for cultural considerations. Similarly, most of the early anthropological work delved intensively into essentialist thinking within a particular culture in familiar ethnographic style. It is only recently that researchers have begun to conduct systematic cross-cultural comparisons of essentialism thinking and perceived entitativity, and to turn their attention to the implications of these phenomena for cultural phenomena beyond the immediate particularities of the study context.

In this respect, the global expansion of social psychology, and the field’s serious reckoning with the importance of culture, have both been tremendous blessings for this body of research. In this section of the chapter we review a diverse body of research on the cultural dimensions of essentialism and entitativity. Our emphasis on the former mirrors the greater quantity of relevant research. The studies that we review were primarily conducted by social psychologists, but we also make reference to work carried out by developmental psychologists when they address beliefs about human categories and attributes, and by anthropologists when their work has a psychological flavor.
