A paradigm case formulation of technology is developed to provide a conceptual framework for addressing the process of culture change. The Descriptive Psychology approach to the concept of culture is reviewed followed by a conceptualization of the transfer of technology across cultures. The Technology Transfer Model illustrates the potential for Descriptive Psychology to aid in developing effective social policy using the general criterion of behavior potential as a choice principle.
