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

Like most gentiles in Nazi occupied Paris architect Lucien Bernard has little empathy for the Jews So when a wealthy industrialist offers him a large sum of money to devise secret hiding places for Jews Lucien struggles with the choice of risking his life for a cause he doesn t really believe in Ultimately he can t resist the challenge and begins designing expertly concealed hiding spaces behind a painting within a column or inside a drainpipe detecting possibilities invisible to the average eye But when one of his clever hiding spaces fails horribly and the immense suffering of Jews becomes incredibly personal he can no longer deny reality br br Written by an expert whose knowledge imbues every page this story becomes more gripping with every life the architect tries to save br, In Being and Time Heidegger gives an account of the distinctive features of human existence in an attempt to answer the question of the meaning of being He finds that underlying all of these features is what he calls original time In this clear and straightforward introduction to the text Paul Gorner takes the reader through the work examining its detail and explaining the sometimes difficult language which Heidegger uses The topics which he covers include being in the world being with thrownness and projection truth authenticity time and being and historicity His book makes Being and Time accessible to students in a way that conveys the essence of Heidegger s project and remains true to what is distinctive about his thinking, Two years ago Riley Young fled from Lawton Alabama After accusing the oldest Lawton son Rhett of rape everyone called her a liar and she had no option but to leave Now she s back but she s not at Lawton High finishing up her senior year She s at home raising the little girl that no one believed was Rhett s br br Rhett is off at college living the life he was afraid he d lose with Riley s accusation so Riley agrees to move back to Lawton so she and her parents could take care of her grandmother who is suffering from Alzheimer s But the town still hasn t forgotten their hate for her and she hasn t forgotten the way they turned on her when she needed them most br br When town golden boy Brady Higgens finds Riley and her daughter Bryony stranded on the side of the road in a storm he pulls over and gives them a ride Not because he cares about Riley of course but because of the kid br br But after the simple car ride he begins to question everything he thought he knew Could Brady believe Riley and risk losing everything, In Chemistry Imagined Nobel laureate Roald Hoffmann in a unique collaboration with artist Vivian Torrence reveals the creative and humanistic sparks that drive science in general and chemistry in particular A series of thirty field color painted collages paired with short essays personal commentary and poems evokes the magic of this usually inaccessible field its historical roots the richness of modern chemical activities and the mysterious confluences of science and art Showing the general reader how science permeates daily life Hoffmann stresses the social cultural literary and psychological contexts of chemistry With delicate surreal images Torrence explores the highly visual nature and the intellectual essence of chemistry the way chemists think and the way they formulate their questions Chemistry Imagined discusses chemical discoveries processes and personalities in an unusually humanistic manner Perusing the contents a reader finds the first drafts of the periodic table of elements likened to revisions of a William Blake poem the chemical reasons behind the success of Chinese folk medicine a poem about scanning tunneling microscopy similarities between molecules and musical instruments and a meditation on why it is that scientists supposediy discover but artists create The general public along with scientists and artists will find that this celebration of how molecular science fits into world culture is surprising compelling and poignantly beautiful Torrence s provocative images and Hoffmann s perceptions of modern and ancient chemistry shape an illuminating collage of a central science
