Eurocentrism

Rejecting the dominant Eurocentric view of world history, which narrowly and incorrectly posits a progression from the Greek and Roman classical world to Christian feudalism and the European capitalist system, Amin presents a sweeping reinterpretation that emphasizes the crucial historical role played by the Arab Islamic world.

Now to go somewhere else for the details. Feb 25, Catherine rated it liked it Shelves: Most of my classmates dismissed this book as Marxist trash. I was very interested in the notion that the West has appropriated the culture of Greece into its canon when Greece is geographically and culturally much closer to the East.

Una lectura obligada para todos interesados en el eurocentrismo y como afecta al mundo.

Kind of a mixed bag. It talks about a lot of stuff that’s important and every so often mentions something useful and interesting but I feel that on the whole it doesn’t really come across as coherent.

For example, I don’t really have a clear definition of his idea of Eurocentrism. Every time he seemed about to talk about it explicitly, he went on to something else. It’s almost certain it’s, to a large degree, down to me being a bad reader, but it was definitely frustrating.

I feel some of it mig Kind of a mixed bag. I feel some of it might be down to translation but it still leaves a lot of times when he starts talking about something and I’m confused as to what he’s referring to or don’t see the link.

Again though, main wasn’t clear in what ways he thought religion relates to Eurocentrism etc – what he eurrocentrism about is very interesting on its own but it doesn’t mesh together well. Eurocenrism the end, he starts talking about global value which is a fascinating and important topic but he says it’s not relevant here and doesn’t go into it. Yet the conclusion of the book as a whole is just a page saying that worldwide value is the key to everything.

Ultimately, it said a lot of valuable stuff that I think could do with being talked about more and is generally kept out of view, but didn’t say it coherently enough or in enough detail to make it a valuable guide for those looking to challenge Eurocentrism by itself.

If impartiality is impossible, Amin is trully far away from it. This is a deep and wide analysis of the eurocentrism ideology, n his master piece. I read Amin’s Book; very useful notes.
