en Limba Engleză Paperback – 20 Jan 2015
In this pioneering book, Joseph Shaules explores exciting new research in cultural psychology and neuroscience, and explains how the new science of the
mind can help us understand how the unconscious mind processes cultural differences, and how our sense of identity shapes how we view the world.

The Intercultural Mind presents new perspectives on important questions such as:

What is culture shock, and how does it affect us?
Why are we blind to our own cultural conditioning?
Can cultural differences be measured?
What does it mean to have an international mindset?

Illustrated with a wealth of examples and memorable stories, The Intercultural Mind is a fascinating look at how intercultural experiences can transform the geography of thinking.
