Eastern wisdom and Western philosophy: Several comparative points

Nguyen, H. H. (2016). Eastern wisdom and Western philosophy: Several comparative points. Vietnam Social Sciences, 3(161), 37-45.

Abstract: The two conceptions “the Eastern” and “the Western” have been known for several recent decades. The Eastern is used to show the area of the sunrise, including Asian countries - the civilizations in the valleys of Nile River, Ganges River and Yellow River (Huang He River); whereas, the Western is used to show Western European countries such as England, France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Portugal, Spain etc..., but not all the rest countries of the world. There are a lot of differences between the Eastern wisdom and the Western philosophy, due to particular social features in each area in terms of the approach, nature, objectives, objects, methods of awareness, ways to reach the truth, intelligence, knowledge, relationships between subject and object, means of consciousness, development ways, and dialectics as well.
