Here's a photo caption from the article:

"Dr. Richard Nisbett and his colleagues have found that people in different
cultures think not just about different things, but think differently. "

This, of course, is a different idea from Gardner's (and I have previously
expressed skepticism over Gardner's overbroad claims), but the point is the
same--we cannot use the same ladle to spoon out "knowledge" (even if you do
buy into this metaphor) to different students without regard for their
background. At issue is the kind of background we are talking about.

Nisbett, of course, is no slouch in the field, so what he says will command
attention in the cognitive science circles. The question I have to this
list is whether we should and/or will pay attention to these developments?
