Cross-Cultural Atlas

About 1978 at the University of Illinois Bookstore I purchased computer print-outs of analyses reported by Charles E. Osgood, W. H. May, and M. S. Miron in their 1975 book, Cross-Cultural Universals of Affective Meaning (Urbana: University of Illinois Press). The print-outs reported results of "tool-making" analyses, and provided Evaluation-Potency-Activity profiles for 610 concepts in 17 culture/language communities:

bulletCosta Rica/Spanish
bulletGermany/German
bulletIndia/(Hindi, Bengali)
bullet Iran/Farsi
bulletIsrael/Hebrew
bulletLebanon/Arabic
bulletMalaysia/Malay
bulletMexico (Mexico City, Yucatan)/Spanish
bulletNetherlands/Dutch
bulletPortugal/Portuguese.
bullet Thailand/Thai
bulletTurkey/Turkish
bulletU.S.A./(White English, Black English)
bullet Yugoslavia/Serbo-Croat

The Osgood, May, and Miron book reported analyses in additional communities, but I have no information regarding societies other than those listed above.

As time permits, I am converting these print-outs to PDF files and posting them on the Web for posterity. I also am scanning the EPA profiles for 610 concepts into a pancultural data file in SPSS format. These materials may be downloaded at www.indiana.edu/~socpsy/Atlas/.
