|Title:||Text-context Relationships and Their Implications for Cross Cultural Management||Contributor(s):||Jabri, M (author)||Publication Date:||2005||DOI:||10.1177/1470595805058415||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/135||Abstract:||Cross-national comparisons of culture-related values are largely based on an ontology that asserts a certain 'reality': the perceived sameness of the self with social others. This ontology is predicated on the presumption that comparisons and contrasts among cultures can be based on a universal pre-ordained set of dimensions upon which commensurability of comparisons and contrasts is advanced. The present article argues that a methodological approach combining 'text' and 'context' demonstrates that the presumed sameness of the self with social others leads to a loss of context-specific, experiential understanding. The approach suggested here thus destabilizes the presumption of a universal set of dimensions upon which comparisons and contrasts among cultures have previously been made. This, in turn, destabilizes the very concept upon which cross-national comparisons have been based.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||International Journal of Cross Cultural Management, 5(3), p. 349-360||Publisher:||Sage Publications||Place of Publication:||London, UK||ISSN:||1470-5958||Field of Research (FOR):||150313 Quality Management||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 123
