Asian Values and the Eudaimonic Relation

The neo-liberal orthodoxy of the West has put social values in the spotlight thanks to the amazing financial growth in East asian nations, which has been achieved under various modalities. These are generally called” Eastern principles”: discipline, hard work, thrift, educational achievement, the importance of relatives, balancing individual and societal needs, and deference to authority Some experts claim that these Asiatic norms are responsible for East Asia’s remarkable economic growth rates and organized democratic structures.

Nonetheless, this argument is essentially an interior one. The traditions and traditions that underpin the development of modern East Asia are rooted in these traditions. Many of these principles derive from Confucian convention, which views the home as the fundamental social component under which all other connections operate.

These principles affect how government functions, how it is organized, and how social membership is practiced. Additionally, they have an impact on the nature of the financial marriage between East Asia and the West. In a 1994 norms poll, “accountability of public leaders through open elections” was ranked among the highest critical beliefs by both American and East Asian respondents. These findings suggest that Eastern values are more in line with South Asian conventional values than a dismissal of Western liberal democracy.

This article aims to give insight into what these Asiatic beliefs mean and how they affect eudaimonic well-being. In particular, it is believed that those who support higher levels of Eastern values and are exposed to high levels of cultural stress will be able to use their own ethnic coping strategies to counteract racism, buffering the negative effects of this cultural discrimination on psychic well-being.
