North American Cognitive style: “There is no society, only individuals”

Wester or at leat North American cognitive style is about disassembling things into there parts where as eastern cognitive style is about seeing things as holistic and all encompassing.

Where a North American might say, there is no society, only individuals, someone from the east might say the opposite. That there are no individuals, only society.

I feel like the reality is that there are both society, and individuals, and people leaning towards one side or the other exclusively, only do so in order to set there minds in a way that they think will benifit them the most.
