Description


GERMAN culture is unique, not universal. Certain characteristics explain why Germany became what it became, and did onto others what it had to. Ever since their discovery of China, German missionaries and philosophers had feverishly tried to convert the Chinese to Christianity and the Greco-Hellenic ways. That included a form of brutal 'language imperialism' by which all important Chinese key terminologies were translated into biblical and philosophical words and categories. The result, to this day, is a German 'Chinabild' China image] that is virtually Chinese-free.
