  • Identity and Culture It is not surprising that we shy away from true understanding. If I am truly open to the way life is experienced by another person if I can take his world into mine then I run the risk of seeing life his way, of being changed myself. So we tend to view this other persons world only in our terms, not in his. We analyse it and evaluate it we do not understand it !! Rogers and Stevens (1967, page 93)

  • A thought! "Liberation is impossible if we fail to see ourselves in more positive terms. For without a change of vision, we are slaves to the oppressor's ideas and values - ideas and values that finally attack the very core of our existence. Therefore, we must see the world in terms of our own realities." Larry Neal, "Black Art and Black Liberation," 1969
