Description

Cultural values and structures differ in societies throughout the world. For example, the traditional conformism of Confucian countries is vastly dissimilar from the individualistic values of Western societies. In today’s globalized environment, the greatest challenge is the collaboration of diverse cultures. The comprehension of global epistemology and the understanding of diverse cultural perspectives is needed in order to sustain global harmony and intercultural congruence.

Cultural Perspectives on Global Research Epistemology: Emerging Research and Opportunities is a pivotal reference source that discusses the effect of globalization on intercultural communication and critical thinking and analyzes Eastern and Western societies from an epistemological standpoint. While highlighting topics including uncertainty avoidance, Confucianism, and cultural heritage, this book is ideally designed for researchers, scientists, anthropologists, sociologists, educators, practitioners, and students seeking current research on epistemic discordance in global research.
