Abstract:

Just as it rarely occurs to observers to question how the experiences and views of certain segments of the US society differ from those of the dominant group, seldom do we question how our lives differ from those of foreigners. Seldom do we recognize that oftentimes one person's perspective is another person's ideology and that what is ideology for some people may be theology for others. Too often we invent the other's world or impose upon it paradigms that distort social reality. Hence, the "others' " truth needs to be better documented if we are to build a universally sound knowledge foundation.
