Some important questions discussed in this
book:
- Are there any civilizations other than the
Western one living in our so-called
Global-Age ?
- "Eastern civilization"? Is the concept of
East anything more than non-West? Or does
there exist, in reality, a distinct Chinese,
Indian, Arabo-Muslim, and Western
civilization?
- Is the construction of large civilization-states
such as China and India an unparalleled
historical achievement?
- Do economic ties always eclipse other
forms of affiliation such as those formed
through kinship or between speech
communities?
- What is the role of the "Latin" and the
Jewish Peoples in our Anglo-American-led
Western world?
- Is English today the global language or
merely an international one?
- Is the Chinese thought pattern closely
related to its writing system?
- Is today's world one of (symmetrical)
interdependence? Or rather one of hegemony?
- If the so-called North-South or East-West
dialogue fails in constructing a universally accepted world civilization, then what is the appropriate arrangement for reaching such a
consensus within humankind ?
