Synopsis: The East-West dichotomy is a philosophical concept of ancient origin which claims that the two cultural hemispheres, East and West, developed diametrically opposed, one from the particular to the universal and the other from the universal to the particular; the East is more inductive while the West is more deductive. Together they form an equilibrium. # Featuring defining and thought-provoking chapters on: * History * Induction & deduction * Asia-centrism * Equilibrium * Demography & Migration * Cultural effects of the dichotomy * Two successful models * Two incommensurable realities * The theory of power and to whom it belongs * The problem of standard * A loveless Darwinian desert * The psychology of communion * The problem with Nature * Ideology, Gender and many more... # Including over 345 references and hundreds of quotes from historical personalities # Becoming the standard work on the East-West discourse

About the Author: Thorsten Pattberg was born in Germany and educated in Philosophy, History, Chinese, Sanskrit, Indian and Buddhism Studies at The University of Edinburgh (U.K.), Fudan University, Peking University (P.R. China), and The University of Tokyo (Japan).
