EAST AND WEST, WHERE IS THE BOUNDARY?
And we should ask, where is this mythical boundary between East and West located? Is Eastern Europe of the East because it is "Eastern" or the West because it is European? Is the so-called Near East part of the Eastern culture or of the West because much of it is equivalent in longitude with parts of Europe? What about Africa or South America, which are on the same longitude with Europe and North America, the bastions of the so-called West? They have older cultures which resemble the Eastern or Asiatic more so than the Western or European. 

Are the American Indians Easterners or Westerners? Thee culture and racial is more of the Asiatic, yet they are the native people of a region regarded as Western.  On what basic do we make the distinction of East and West? If it is  by race, we must remember that many of the people of Asia-like those of India and the Middle East-are of the same Caucasian race as the people of Europe.
