At IAS, Paul DiMaggio is working on a book that develops a framework for the social-scientific study of culture that takes into account recent work on social cognition and cognitive neuroscience, and applies it to a series of puzzles: How does meaning work? What are values? How (and when) do elements of a culture cohere? How does culture change?
