Greek Vs. Hebrew

In my book Commitment by Elizabeth Glibert(aka kindred spirit of Priscilla) she talks about the Western culture and their perspectives being either Greek or Hebrew.  Here is her explanation:
Hebrew-Tribanism, faith, obedience, respect, good vs. evil, actualism, moralistic, ritualistic, morality important over happiness; Human actions either right or wrong

GREEKS- secular humanism and sanctity of individual , democracy, equality, and personal liberty, scientific reason, and intellectual freedom, urban, sophisticated, exploratory, leaving room for debate

Depending on the topic, one may fall in different areas.  There maybe a difference between one's real life, personal life, and love life or maybe one carries the same principles from one realm to the next.. Thoughts?
