EAST AND WEST, WHERE IS THE BOUNDARY?
Both of these eras were creative because of an interchange of ideas with many outside sources. Renaissance thinkers studied Greek, Roman, Middle Eastern and sometimes Indian sources. The ancient Greeks and Romans took much from Egypt, Mesopotamia, Persia and India. These interchanges were not signs of the poverty of their culture but its openness. Yet besides these two great cultural eras the religious era of the early Christianity overshadows them in the Western mind. The religious movement of Christianity was exclusive, not synthetic, and covers over the otherwise more synthetic nature of Western culture. 

Western culture is generally defined in two ways, which are usually combined, though they are contradictory. First it is regarded as scientific and rational, as opposed to oriental culture which is unscientific and mystical. Second by its Christian religion (with which Judaism and Islam may be combined), it is regarded as humanitarian and monotheistic, while Eastern religions are viewed as otherworldly and polytheistic or monistic.
