Chapter Summary

This article sets out to describe two different ways of thinking and operating that are found in Papua New Guinea. It seeks to put them in relationship to one another and to clarify their areas of operation. The different ways are termed the Village Traditional mindset and the Critical Methodological mindset. In this article, the author says that the present state of working out of two mindsets is a stable state and that it is not at all difficult to live out of two mindsets at the same time. He is concerned with two given mindsets as two different relations of thought to action. The operations of human meaning making can be shown to be the same at times but the goals for which life is explained are different. The basic task of this essay is to describe the two mindsets adequately, and to allow a place for their co-existence.

Keywords: areas of operation; co-existence; Critical Methodology; PNG Village; Traditional Ways; Working Out Of Two Mindsets
