The Geography of Thought

Secret Garden

Globalization suggests that we humans are all internationalists, who think similarly and are only cosmetically affected by geography. But is this true? How does geography influence thought and ideas?

And, on a more profound level, do the children of Aristotle think differently to the descendants of Confucius?
