Chapter excerpt

Illustration: Western culture distributed in different regions and countries, if you want to truly understand the west, first to research to these countries and regions of the natural environment, ethnic, national and religious belief, know the local customs and practices. "Han" in say: "where are the people in Wuchang, while the rigid flexible priority, voice is different, the soil atmosphere, so that the wind." The natural environment and folk custom, which is the premise and condition of the western culture, is the basic factor of the physical form of culture. First, the history of western culture are mainly distributed in Europe, so we introduce the geographical environment in Europe and the nation state, especially in the Mediterranean and Western europe. America historian Staveley Anos (L.S.Stavrianos) once said, "the geography factor is an important factor to the other regions in Europe in the Middle Ages to the front. One of them is the favorable position of the". Whether we agree with this view, the geographical environment is one of our research content. We will start from the natural geographical environment and national condition of this cultural distribution, tracing its history, analysis of the modern form of it, is to have a comprehensive understanding of this culture. Second, the modern form of western culture, Western Europe and North America is its core, North America and Canada USA although located in America, but they were once colonies of Europe, its population poses a considerable proportion of European immigrants, their culture and the development of Europe have all kinds of connections with contact. In modern society, North America and become an important component of the western world, this is not only because of its economic development level and Europe are the same, the developed countries in the world, and they have a common cultural traditions are closely related. In late eighteenth Century, America after independence, economic development is rapid, replaced the British, to become a world economic superpower, the leader of the western world. Most of the early settlers American from Europe, and with European culture, but also into the old American Indian civilization, various traditional from Africa black civilization, the world brought by immigrants. All of these complex components, together form a new world culture creation, this kind of creation in turn greatly enriched the contents of Western culture. So the study of western culture, in addition to the introduction of Europe, North America and Canada American range includes natural should also be included in the study.
