It's sort of like becoming fluent in a language in order to better understand another culture. You're not relying on the language to teach you basic courtesy and human decency. You're relying on the language to better express the courtesy/decency that you already have. And to better navigate those interactions in the context of another culture.
Sure, there are some people who would go, there's no such thing as culture, everybody's a person, so you don't need to be fluent in either the language or the culture to understand human nature. There are a lot of psychics for whom the tools get in the way.
