Read online The Geography of Thought: How Asians and Westerners Think Differently... and Why.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Geography of Thought: How Asians and Westerners Think Differently... and Why A landmark book Robert J Sternberg president of the American Psychological Association by one of the world s preeminent psychologists that proves human behavior is not hard wired but a function of culture .

Everyone knows that while different cultures think about the world differently they use the same equipment for doing their thinking But what if everyone is wrong .

i The Geography of Thought i documents Richard Nisbett s groundbreaking international research in cultural psychology and shows that people actually think about and even see the world differently because of differing ecologies social structures philosophies and educational systems that date back to ancient Greece and China As a result East Asian thought is holistic drawn to the perceptual field as a whole and to relations among objects and events within that field By contrast Westerners focus on salient objects or people use attributes to assign them to categories and apply rules of formal logic to understand their behavior .

From feng shui to metaphysics from comparative linguistics to economic history a gulf separates the children of Aristotle from the descendants of Confucius At a moment in history when the need for cross cultural understanding and collaboration have never been more important i The Geography of Thought i offers both a map to that gulf and a blueprint for a bridge that will span it by Richard E. Nisbett
