5 Conclusions

Finally, I would like to mention some specific criticisms about Hofstede's research. There are in fact a number of criticisms that can be made, but I will confine myself to two main issues:

2.1 Surfaces in space

In Section 2 we start by introducing surfaces informally, considering several familiar examples such as the sphere, cube and Möbius band. We also illustrate how surfaces can be constructed from a polygon by identifying edges. A more formal approach to surfaces is presented at the end of the section.
