    • Abstract:
      It is not enough to give up our prejudices of racial superiority and believe in the brotherhood of man. We need to understand the facts and values of cultural differences, and with this appreciation to plan social forms within which people of various cultural backgrounds may work together constructively. Our problem is to construct from these cultures a system which embraces them all. Many of our human frictions arise from failure to understand differences in culture that make it natural for people to think and act differently. To recognize the cultural causes of such behavior patterns, will enable us to respect them and readjust our attitudes from hostility to interest, or from indifference to mutual participation in common enterprises.
