L inteLLigence intercuLturelle
From one culture to another, what relationship do we have with nature, disease, social status, gender or hierarchy? Do French and Japanese have the same perception of "I" and "we"? In the United States, India or Senegal, does one tend to think of time in a more cyclical or linear way? What is rich or poor in Africa, Europe or Latin America? Articulated around 15 key themes in 130 questions, this book explores the extraordinary variety of cultural representations, and their consequences on our respective behaviors. To guide the reader, the authors draw on sociology, anthropology or linguistics. They also present a wide variety of stories, surveys and examples of practice from around the world and learn from their own experience.
