A German Illustrates Graphically Chinese and Western Cultural Differences
By China Review News Translator Sheng-Wei Wang
October 1, 2013

The graphics shown below are drawn by a German. He seems to have done some research work on Chinese culture or rather he has at least seen the surface of the problem, which is already unusual. The reason why his understanding of the differences between the Chinese and German culture are somewhat superficial is because he has only seen the surface but not understood in more depth why the Chinese are like what he has drawn. I believe that he will not be able to give the answer, not the correct answer.


However, even so, from his drawings, we can feel profoundly the serious differences between Eastern and Western cultures, as well as a series of problems caused by their differences. For example, the way of thinking and dealing with others, the view of the world, the meaning of life and the exploration of it (Source of the drawings: http://www.sinonet.org/news/china/2012-10-12/230627.html).
