East-West Differences in Reasoning

No comments

Can something be true and not true at the same time? East Asian & Western philosophies have had very different ways of answering this question that still affects the ways people in various cultures reason.

The collectivist culture of Asia emphasizes harmony & a constantly changing environment in which contradictions are natural, & truth depends on the context. Maintaining the order of relationships is paramount. 

Individualist cultures share a philosophical background that searched for the essential non-changing properties of objects. This philosophy was the foundation of science that searches for immutable “Laws.”

These philosophies aren’t just esoteric words…they become embedded in the cultures through religion & education & tradition. The experimental database is not yet huge, but more studies are showing that East-West/Asian-Non-Asian/Interdependent-Independent cultures see the world in very different, significant ways.
