  1. Psychopathic personality in different cultures : What do we know ? What do we need to find out ?

    Article - En anglais

    Psychopathic personality disorder is present in many cultures.

    A cross-cultural approach to the study of psychopathic personality disorder may advance our understanding of its etiology.

    Speculation concerning the importance of enculturation and socialization in the etiological process is presented.

    Data comparing differences in the prevalence of psychopathic personality disorder between Scotland and North America are reviewed : it is concluded that significant differences exist.

    Four empirical strategies, designed to enhance our understanding of cross-cultural differences, are proposed.
