World View: The Second Hidden Dimension.
Skow, Lisa; And Others
Proposing that world view is a dimension of culture which lies below the surface of human behavior at the level of the subconscious, this paper argues that this often ignored dimension of culture profoundly influences human communication. The paper is divided into two sections. First, world view is defined and its importance in explaining how communication operates is described from multiple perspectives. Second, as a way of demonstrating the specific influence of world view, the paper shows how it helps clarify the negotiation styles employed by various cultures. The paper then focuses on linking world view with how cultures make decisions, choose negotiators, and use abstract or concrete reasoning. Thirty references are attached. (Author/SR)
