Hsieh, E. & Kramer, E. M. (2021). Rethinking culture in health communication: Social interactions as intercultural encounters. Wiley.
In this book, the foundational framework is that cultures can be understood from three perspectives: Magic Consciousness (e.g., all lives are connected as one), Mythic Connection (e.g., stories and narratives that strengthen group norms and values), and Perspectival Thinking (e.g., science). These cultural perspectives also blend with one another, creating an Integral Fusion perspective (e.g., a scientist who is also highly religious). We then use these cultural perspectives to examine existing theories in health communication and health policies.
