In this episode, we discuss the difference between culture and worldview. Stephen explains how culture goes beyond differences in thinking and includes everything ranging from our sometimes wordless embodied experiences to our deepest assumptions about what the universe is and means. We talk about how cultural values frameworks help us to see the differences between cultures by posing important questions, and Stephen talks about how approaches to intercultural communication that look the same on the surface can actually differ significantly, depending on whether a traits-based or process-oriented dyanamic approach to culture is used.
We talk about the role of navigation in the development of the concepts of time, and how the approaches used at Greenwich reflect assumptions about what it means to know and research something. And, Stephen shares a just-for-fun project he was working on with his son.
