A Footnote On My "War of Ideas" Post

Towards the end of that post I put forth the (not so original) ideal that, as a global population, we clash now because all nationalities, and cultures, are in, figuratively speaking, each other's faces and that is not a good thing. The underlying assumption here being that so many of the cultures of the world perceive things quite differently; often at a fundamental level.

Just to give you some perspective on that I present now an interesting look into how social scientists were themselves were made aware of just how different such perceptive foundations could be. It is well worth the read.
