Teaching for Cross-Cultural Understanding.
Ladu, Tora Tuve
Stating that man's intellectual and spiritual horizons need to be expanded through educational programs and approaches in cross-cultural understanding, the author claims that a greater world perspective is attained through the study of social studies, foreign language, English, fine arts, and science, particularly in interdisciplinary programs. The Whorfian hypothesis of language and culture is reviewed, citing France as an example, in a discussion of values. Relevance, communication, provincialism, ethnocentricism, world community, sociocultural context, anthropology, and formal and deep culture are concepts discussed in the address. (RL)
