I am not Asian and never will be. Even if I forget it sometimes, no one else does. But I am not what I was before I came here, either.
To this, I think- as well as Appiah suggests that many people are in fact situationalists, Appiah cites Oskar Shindler film character as having many conflicting traits yet over all the character is remembered as being mostly compassionate.
Another point is that compassion is not truly a character trait, which I am on the fence about agreeing with. If anything, I think the fact that humans are unaware of our extreme sensitivity to circumstances that it would provide an apt opportunity to change how we as humans, psychologists, or writers view character traits.
When Appiah references the Princeton seminarians who do not stop to render aid if they are late, I would not say that they are not compassionate, I would propose that they instead value their appointment more than they did compassion.
They are compassionate to some degree, which would add to the complexity of compassion as a character trait, not eliminate it. Could I not say that I am compassionate, but not as much as I value my character trait of punctuality?
According to Appiah, I could not- I could not have compassion as a character trait if it was not fully realized though in most people it is not, which I suppose is why Appiah argues this point.The authors of the two articles, Questions of Culture and The Case for Contamination, examine at the issue of globalization's affect on cultures, with separate viewpoints.
