The Essential Differences Between Eastern Asian and Western Civilizations

A Road Scholar program by Xiaosi Yang

Join Xiaosi Yang as he discusses the six dimensions of culture and their formation into distinct societies. The inclusion of the individual, family, political society, and the “human” world are four of the dimensions by which every culture necessarily defines itself. Throughout history, however, Eastern Asian and Western cultures have emphasized a different formulation of these dimensions. This separate emphasis is a useful tool in assessing the different strengths and weaknesses of Easterners and Westerners.
