“The Wintu Indians of Northern California have a conception of the self which is markedly different from our own.” They conceive of the self not as strictly defined but as a concentration which gradually fades and gives place to the other. Most of what is other for us is generally identified with the self for the Wintu. Data from the Wintu culture are cited. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
