An essay
on the WESTERN WORLD

by Tage Lindbom


{If the Truth had been in accord with their desires, truly the heavens and the earth, and all beings therein would have been in confusion and corruption! Nay, We have sent them their admonition, but they turn away from their admonition.}
(The Quran, 23:71)

This is how Tage Lindbom introduces his paper:

"THE PARTING FROM THE NEAR EAST, which takes its conscious forms in about five hundred years before Christ and which is the embryo of what we today call the Western World, is primarily characterised by an individual consciousness, the positive implication of which is the parting from the Cosmic unity. As a second element to this "Greek wonderÓ comes the Judaic monotheism and the victory of Christianity in the late antiquity."
