Thinking across Cultures

By Donald M. Topping; Doris C. Crowell et al. | Go to book overview

Cultural differences in the nature of rhetoric, logic, or mode of thinking are the likely sources for these differences. The classification scheme used here offers a snapshot, still somewhat blurred, but a representation of some of the processes of cognitive enculturation.


ACKNOWLEDGMENT

We thank Lorena Goodman Spence for her assistance in coding and analyzing the data.
