Western Civilisation. Ghandi famously said that there was no such thing and I myself started going down the same route in thought. I was thinking of all the books you can buy on the thing that is supposed to be Western Civilization. Why can’t you buy a book that is about Eastern Civilization? Why can’t you buy a book on Eastern History, but you can buy many on the thing called Western Civilization? Is it because only the west thinks of itself in this reified, monolithic way? Is it because the West has a more unified identity? Maybe I should pick up one of the books on the topic in the future and check out how they justify their existence – it should definitely be an interesting read.
