French historian Alexis de Tocqueville observed that the conflict between the ideals of individualism and community defines American culture. In this groundbreaking new work, anthropologist Charles Nuckolls discovers that every culture consists of such paradoxes, thus making culture a problem that cannot be solved. He does, however, find much creative tension in these unresolvable opposites. Nuckolls presents three fascinating case studies that demonstrate how values often are expressed in the organization of social roles. First he treats the Micronesian Ifaluks’ opposition between cooperation and self-gratification by examining the nature versus nurture debate. Nuckolls then shifts to the values of community and individual adventure by looking at the conflicts in the identities of public figures in Oklahoma. Finally, he investigates the cultural significance in the diagnostic system and practices of psychiatry in the United States. Nuckolls asserts that psychiatry treats genders differently, assigning dependence to women and independence to men and, in some cases, diagnoses the extreme forms of these values as disorders. Nuckolls elaborates on the theory of culture that he introduced in his previous book, The Cultural Dialectics of Knowledge and Desire, which proposed that the desire to resolve conflicts is central to cultural knowledge.

The newcomer to semiotics is the primary intended reader of this book. Each of the authors of the various branches of semiotics open this perspective to all who want to know about semiotics, as well as to those who want to add to their knowledge of semiotics. The topics cover the major areas of semiotics and the human sciences: linguistics, theater, psychology, religion, anthropology, history, law, graphics, music, media, poetics, architecture, and a capsule overview of Charles Sander Peirce. The individual essays develop each specialist's approach to semiotics, with full bibliography for follow-through. The introductory chapter points out the unifying themes that tie the special topics together.
