Cracking the Cultural Code

Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, 2007

Is there a code by means of which we could raise creative children with scientific mental ability? Cracking the Cultural Code is an attempt to decipher the ways of thinking of the two central cultures in our world: the modern-individualist and the traditional-collectivist. What is the nature of the cultural code of societies which are selffocused and seek to teach their children to think independently? And what code is employed by members of other-focused cultures whose children are taught to value connection and integration into the family cell rather than independence. With the aid of examples, exercises and solutions, the book focuses on the question of how to raise children who are creative, skilled in scientific thinking and ripe for life in a democratic
society.
