East X West


东方x西方
从地域到文化

原本是地域的、独立发展和存在的地球两面。 从亚里斯多德时代至今,西方文化界限清晰,东方文化则更加宽泛。西方更重视微观、具象、实证,东方更重视宏观、多角度、多意象。 丝绸之路与地理大发现,使东方古老思维影响了西方社会理想的构建,西方社会理想又反哺东方引发了社会变动。至今仍是对立性共存。 经济体系的现代化,促使西方文化与东方文化开始了全新的、对等的交流。开放包容,相互借鉴,取长补短,择善而从,文化才能超越历史局限,文化才能体现时代精神。

EAST X WEST
from region to culture

Culture of east and west used to exist as two independent culture fields. Since the time of Aristotle up to now, western culture has been more specific while eastern culture has been more extensive. The west attaches more importance to micro, concrete and empirical evidence, and the east attaches more importance to macro, multi-angle and multi-image.
The Silk Road and the Great Geographical Discovery made the ancient thinking in the east influence the ideal construction of western society, meanwhile, the ideal of western society influenced the eastern society and caused the change of Oriental society. It is still in the present age an oppositional coexistence. The modernization of the economic system has led to a new and reciprocal exchange between western culture and eastern culture.
Through openness and inclusiveness, mutual learning, draw on each other' s strengths and learning of the past, the culture can transcend the limitations of history, manifesting the spirit of the times.
