Learning Considered within a Cultural Context: Confucian and Socratic Approaches.
Tweed, Roger G.; Lehman, Darrin R.
American Psychologist, v57 n2 p89-99 Feb 2002
Uses a Confucian-Socratic framework to analyze culture's influence on academic learning, comparing and contrasting ideals for learning that are culturally more Chinese (Confucian) with those that are more western (Socratic). Discusses expressions of these approaches in modern postsecondary contexts, noting the effects of these approaches on students who either fit or do not fit the cultural ideal. (Contains references.)
