HO* Hong Kong University, Hong Kong ABSTRACT A dialogue between two psychologists, Dr. East and Dr. West, discusses: (a) ethnocentric bias and the social consequences, stereotyping in particular, of ethnicity and cross-cultural research; (b) the responsibility Asian psychologists should assume for their lack of organization and research efforts, while recognizing that they may be subject to severe sociopolitical con- straints ; (c) prejudice and ideology: East and West; (d) Colonialism and its psychological conse- quences ; (e) Asian collective identity; and (f) social change as a precondition for desirable psychological changes to occur. THE FOLLOWING PASSAGES record a dialogue between two psychologists, Dr. East (E) and Dr. West (W), on prejudice, interethnic rela- tions, and ethnic identity. Both are concerned with the role of psychologists in the reduction of prejudices and the enhancement of mutual understanding across ethnic boundaries. Their dialogue covers various aspects of the topic discussed: ethical, political, historical, and scientific. Dr. W.
