Ориентализм / оксидентализм: языки культур и языки их описания = Orientalism / Occidentalism: Languages of Culture vs. Languages of Description

M.: 2012.
Academic editor: E. S. Steiner.
Compiler: E. S. Steiner.

The book discusses the principal aspects of description of the East in the Western scholarly discourse as well as in art and literature. An analysis of the interpretations of the East by the West (and vice versa) and their historical evolution has emerged as especially important in the light of ongoing globalization, which has triggered the intensifi cation of ideological, religious, economic and cultural differences between the East and the West. The goal of the book is to distill a critical understanding of Orientalist / Occidentalist discourses and to question cross-cultural assumptions.
