Description

Until recently the history of human civilization was viewed mainly through the Western perspective, which gave the impression that the Western part of the world was central to the development of culture. In the process the Eastern world, particularly the Far East, was overlooked and neglected.

Recent research by Japanese and Chinese scholars has however demonstrated that this region witnessed the developments of the world's earliest human civilization, based on rice cultivation and fishery.As we enter the 21st century, it has become increasingly important to reconstruct the history of human civilization, taking into consideration the concepts and values of both the Eastern and Western civilization in order to understand them better.

To focus on the differences between the East and West, this book discusses the origins of pottery, as well as the traditions of wheat and rice cultivation. This book incorporates the results of the most recent works carried out in the Eastern and Western world in relation to the man-land relationship and in order to understand the basic difference in the origin of Eastern and Western civilization discusses the origins of pottery as well as the traditions of wheat and rice cultivation.

This book completely reverses the conventional view that the East was behind the West and makes it clear that the origins of pottery and agriculture in the East precedes those in the West. This book aims to rediscover the values of Eastern civilization in the history of human civilization which often have been overlooked. Based on a pluralistic view with comparative studies of the East and West, this book takes a step forward in the construction of a new history of human civilization.
