Rarely questioned ▯  ▯ ▯ Non western civilization ▯ Civilization started 3000 BCE in Sumer ▯ Long before Europe great empires developed in the middle east, north America, india, china and the Americas ▯ Europe was considered not as advanced as Asia, etc ▯ ▯ Eurocentrism- Europe acts- the rest of the word responds. Rest of the word is passive. The west is the “center of the universe”. Most civilized and sophisticated ▯ ▯ Problems with development schemes  Turns world history into moral success tory  Everything before these developments treated as pre modern and irrelevant ▯ page 27 of book ▯ Whole page before rise of social sciences ▯ ▯ Marshall Hodgson  Maps are ways to express our feelings and assumptions  We emphasize some features and reduce others  Temptation to place oneself at the center of the map runs deep  ▯ Greenwich- London Prime meridian.
