Macro cultural psychology is shown to explain micro-level, interpersonal interactions. Examples of play and family relations demonstrate how these micro level interpersonal relations actually recapitulate macro cultural factors. This macro analysis of micro level interactions is contrasted with the popular tendency to regard micro level interactions as autonomous, and even as constituting macro cultural factors. “Micro cultural psychology” is examined and contrasted with the macro analysis of interpersonal interactions. Examples of the former are provided. Discourse and agency are two examples that are discussed from the perspectives of macro and micro cultural psychology. Implications of micro cultural psychology and macro cultural psychology for science and politics are also explored.

Keywords:   agency, discourse, interpersonal interactions, family, science, politics
