Inhalt: This course explores cross-cultural differences, with a focus on cognitive styles and social values within academic and business organisations. Firstly, the course addresses issues such as how these differences manifest themselves in relation to hierarchy, harmony vs. competitiveness, collectivism vs. individualism, gender roles, and on a societal level e. g. science vs. religion. Further topics include how these differences are apparent in varying communicative styles, and whether such styles and values can be modified through intercultural experience and transcultural learning. – Secondly, the seminar explores different approaches in the theory of science, such as the basis of empirical data, deterministic vs. probabilistic hypotheses, structures of theories and models, the relationship between empirical data and theories, history and social psychology of science and the growth of knowledge, descriptive vs. normative propositions, and scientific theory and practical application.
