  • Matthew Vacca

    While this book certainly sheds a lot of light on the different approaches in the thinking of Easterners and Westerners (and the origins of both), that does not necessarily add up to an enjoyable or engaging read. This book comes off a bit like a graduate thesis and certainly has done the homework to back everything up. Having lived in South Korea for the last two years, I have often wondered about (and even laughed out loud at) the subtle cultural differences in my day-to-day life here that tou [...]

    i think the crux of the book is(1) object-based thinking vs (2) context-based thinking and how through the years, the Westerners and the Easterners have differed in their thinking processi think the idea can be equally applied to all of us, as some are more bound to object-based thinking vs context-based. if you have to choose 2 things out of the following 3 things:(1) monkey(2) banana(3) lionand you choose(1) monkey and banana - u are more likely a context-based thinking person(2) monkey and li [...]

    (نُشر هذا العرض في ملحق شرفات بجريدة عمان بتاريخ 14 أبريل 2010)هناك نكتة تقول بأن الأمم المتحدة وزّعت استبانة حول العالم تسأل فيها السؤال التالي: "من فضلك هلاّ قدّمت لنا رأيك الشخصي الصادق حول الحلول لمشكلة نقص الغذاء في بقية أنحاء العالم؟"، وتبيّن من النتائج أنه في أفريقيا لم يف [...]

    For much of my life, I've been a bridge: trying to connect people into communities and communities into networks, helping our world hold together. I was born with/grew into a dislike for arguments (of the quarrel variety) and an affinity for transforming conflicts. Often, I've felt uneasy with the values of my own country or other parts of the West I've been to.This book helped me understand why.Among the brighter insights were:- why I say 'I' so much--and often still feel disconnected from othe [...]

    Fascinating book! While reading another book by a guy who had moved to Thailand, this was recommended. I ended up putting aside the Thailand book in favor of this one. It was just so thought-provoking. Here we are, immersed in a huge country, with this culture that has infiltrated most areas of the world, and most of us are quite unaware that not everyone has the same underlying assumptions that we do as they look at life. In essence, the West is based on the philosophical ideas of the Greeks, w [...]

  • Tim Pendry

    This is an important work in the undermining of the universalism that has afflicted private discourse and public policy in the West since the age of Plato.Nisbett explores a simple issue - whether, how and why East Asians and Americans (though he insists on referring to them as Westerners) think in different ways. It is more exploratory than decisive. There is no psychological experiment that is not contingent in time and space by the very nature of its subject matter but much of his material is [...]

  • Charles

    This is a short book with a sweeping thesis. In essence, the thesis of "The Geography of Mind" is that many important cognitive processes dominant in East Asian (i.e Chinese, Japanese and Korean) cultures are substantially different from those processes in Western (i.e American and European) cultures. This proposition explains a variety of dissimilarities in how people from each culture approach the world and each other, and it is also a partial explanation of the Great Divergence—why the mode [...]

  • Santo

    The differences in thoughts between Asians and westerners have often been elaborated from the perspectives of history, culture, politics, and philosophy. Therefore, it's good to read on a psychology approach on this analysis. The author developed his argument on the basis of case studies carried out among Asians, Asian-Americans, and westerners. Of course, the results of each case study is never conclusive, but in the end, as a whole, the author's work should be commended. Indeed, he merely reco [...]

    Superb. There is no need for me to add another summary to the excellent summaries submitted by other readers. This book had me gripped from beginning to end. Occasionally I had to raise my eyebrow at the use of the term Westerner, when clearly the author meant American, and was describing cultural experiences I cannot relate to at all as an English woman. Also there were many discussions which I felt could have benefitted from feminist analysis - experiences and descriptions of cultures appear v [...]

    "في عام 1991 وقعت جريمتان جماعيتان، إحداهما في الصين والأخرى في أميركا، الأولى قام بها طالب فيزياء صيني خسر جائزة تنافسية، وفشل على إثر ذلك في الحصول على وظيفة أكاديمية، فأطلق الرصاص على المشرف وعلى عدد من زملائه وبعض من صادف وجودهم، أما الجريمة الأميركية فقد أقدم عامل بريد عل [...]

    طالما شغلني التفكير عن أسباب تقدّم الغرب وتخلفنا.وكانت قراءاتي لمن حاول الإجابة عن هذا السؤال, أو حتى اجتهاداتي الذاتية, لا تسمن ولا تغني من جوع.حتى وقع في يدي هذا الكتاب الرائع, وقرأته حينها, ثم أعدت قراءته مرّة أخرى قريباً.في هذا الكتاب يشرح الكاتب أنّ طرق التفكير المتباينة [...]

    ليس من المصادفة أن اقرأ هذا الكتاب بعد قراءة عدة كتب عن الفلسفات والعقائد الشرقيةولكن الصدفة كانت في قراءته بالمزامنة مع كتاب نهاية التاريخ لفوكوياما ،الذي كنت اتسائل طوال الكتاب لما لم يأت الكاتب على ذكره خلال حديثه عن الرؤية الغربية الخطية لمسار التاريخحتى جاء على ذكره ا [...]

  • Nabil Zouine

    يعرض هذا الكتاب نظرة عن طريقة تفكير كل من أبناء الشرق (الصين والهند وكوريا) والغرب (أروبا وأمريكا)، ويبين أوجه الاختلاف بين نمطين من التفكير، كمثال: يجنح الشرقيون للنظر الى الشيئ بمنظور شمولي كلي بينما الغربيون يميلون الى التجزيء. الشرقيون يلقنون أبناءهم الأفعال بينما الغرب [...]

    “East is East and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,” quipped Rudyard Kipling in one of his better-known ballads. It’s an overly recited line used to emphasize the differences between the cultural divide amongst those of eastern and western origin. Continue to read the next few lines of “The Ballad of East and West,” and you’ll soon realize that the ultimate point is not about drawing a line straight down the middle: “But there is no East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor [...]

    Understanding differences in how people from "The East" or "The West" think has profound insights not only on a theoretical level, but can have important implications on a practical level whether in our homes, our communities, or the grander stage of international affairs. Perhaps more than simply explaining sociological through and behavior, a better understanding can help predict actions, or at the very least provide a better informed prediction. Using field research conducted across continent [...]

    Walls of the mindThroughout history, there have always been barriers between cultures. Many of the first boundaries were physical ones drawn along the natural divisions created by continents, oceans, mountain ranges, rivers, and lakes. When these weren't enough to keep some groups of people separated from others, nation states built castles and walls.Over the last thirty years, things have changed dramatically. Countries once closed are now open and people are traveling more than ever. The Berli [...]

    It took me nearly 8 months to finish this book, as I often got annoyed (by its repeating concepts, unstructured content and sometimes wrong arguments) and put it down for a while before picking it up again. The book was published in 2003 and most of the “findings” were not very new even at that time, in my humble opinion. The more “interesting” part for me was the psychological tests the author and his assistants did with “easterners” and “westerners” to prove their arguments. Ho [...]

  • Christine

    This book is a cognitive psychologist’s look at how differences between Asian (mainly Chinese) and Western (mainly American) thinking influence what Nisbett refers to as “habits of mind.” He asserts that differences between Asian and Western “habits of mind” are essentially cognitive. With reference to the intellectual traditions of Aristotelian and Confucian logic, cognitive psychology experiments performed by both Asian and Western researchers, and several of his own experiments, Nis [...]

  • Anthony Bello

    The book's main value comes at the end where it justifies the value of the studies contained therein. The book's second major value comes from the various and diverse experiments cited. All in all, I would not recommend this book.Many things about this book disappointed me. For one thing, I found that the author incorrectly characterizes much of the Western thinkers and thoughts in this book. He claims that Eastern Asians are at fault for discrediting action at a distance, whereas Einstein's dis [...]

  • Eric Sbar

    Understanding the difference between Western and Eastern cultures is a complicated task. This book dissects differences according to philosophy, language and psychology. An interesting read

    The Geography of Thought was definitely enthralling, captivating and stimulating. I came across this book in my mum's bookshelf and was captivated by the title " How Asians and Westerners Think Differently". This question has been in my thought for a couple of months after I have arrived in Korea. As I observed the difference between Westerns at this school and the Easterns (Asians), I started seeing the divergence between two cultures. Simple observations resulted in constant pondering and inqu [...]

  • Richard

    Excellent and thought-provoking summary of the claim that East and West think differently.Anyone who has spent time in another culture quickly discovers that people are people, that there is wide variation among people and their personalities. When you try too hard to generalize, you get it wrong because you'll always find exceptions.Also, some of the things that characterize people are, frankly, a question of modernity and development. Once you've taken a logic class, you "get it", and you'll a [...]

    Nabili ko itong librong 'to sa National Bestseller sa Robinsons, Galleria. Natuwa ako kasi discounted, at saka sakto 'tong librong 'to sa gusto kong matutunan ng mga panahong yon. Kaya binili ko kahit wala akong pera.Paano nga ba mag-isip ang mga tao? Saan nagsimula ang pagkakaiba ng Western at ng Eastern pagdating sa system of thought? Mayroon nga bang universal psychology o Western lang talaga yun at ang plano nila ay gawing Western ang buong mundo?Nasagot naman lahat dito sa librong ito. Ang [...]

    I had just read 3 books about life and culture in Asian settings (Wild Swans, The Crazed, The Orphan Master's Son) and a comment that frequently came up in our discussions was "how can they live without individual freedom?" This book offers insight into the thinking by beginning with the notion that for more than 6000 years, the broad culture in Asia (defined in the book as China, Japan, North Korea, South Korea) has come from a history of wholistic thinking, group oriented, harmony seeking trad [...]

  • Sean

    As someone who has been living and working in Asia for the past 8 years I have to say that this book should be required reading for anyone from the "West" trying to do business or work or form relationships here. This is not a manual for "how to get along" or anything remotely like that. Also it is far from a perfect book/study as other reviewers have pointed out in their criticisms. But are very often many practical matters in work and life in Asia where Eastern thinking and Western thinking bu [...]

  • Wellington

    As someone who lives in the between the words of Western and Asian thought, I had to get my hands on this book. This book had some wonderful material but could have used some just never had that WOW moment where something just clicked. It's really a shame because this topic is really just up my alley.The difference can be summarized as follows: Eastern thought tends to be more holistic, cyclical, and relationship-oriented. While Western thought tends to be more modular, linear, and object-orient [...]

  • Jody

    I hated reading this book. Not because the topic isn't interesting, but because the book was filled with anecdotes, parentheticals, generalizations, and reports of studies without ever answering the question 'how is this information useful?' For example, the author talks about one study where respondents were asked to group two out of three things together: panda, monkey, banana. He argued that Westerners group panda and monkey together because they are both mammals, but Asians group monkey and [...]

  • Muhammad Nusair

    Interesting book. This paragraph is the book in a nutshell :“‎The Chinese believe in constant change, but with things always moving back to some prior state. They pay attention to a wide range of events; they search for relationships between things; and they think you can't understand the part without understanding the whole. Westerners live in a simpler, more deterministic world; they focus on salient objects or people instead of the larger picture; and they think they can control events be [...]

  • Mary

    The Korean graduate student I am tutoring in ESL recommended this excellent summary of the cross cultural psychological research on how people think. East Asians and Americans may be born with the same gray matter but we think in fundamentAlly different ways. East Asians see context, relationships and change where we focus on objects, characteristics and logic. Interestingly enough, this has been true since the time of Aristotle and Confucius. Dr Nesbit, President of the American Psychological A [...]
