Example text

Huntington’s view of Confucian-Islamic culture in particular, is regarded to be too monolithic. It overstates the trait of religious fundamentalism and underscores liberalism as merely a superficial by-product of modernization. Against this, Huntington’s critics point to the many forms of interweaving and hybridity between civilizations. Huntingdon tends to treat the persistence of cultural, religious and ideological difference between civilizations as the triumph of traditionalism. He implies that the West has developed mature modernization, while ‘the Rest’, especially Confucian and Islamic types of civilization, have adopted a more primitive mixed model of cultural traditionalism and technological, military and scientific progress.

Cannadine (2001) demonstrated powerfully how the codification and extension of the honours system was central to the development of the British Empire. 6 English parliamentarianism, individualism, constitutionalism, human rights, equality, liberty, rule of law, separation of Church and state, leisure forms and sports were transported to the colonies as part of a calculated strategy of cultural convergence. This was largely a strategy in which British institutions and hierarchy were portrayed as the quintessence of Western civilization.

This derivation owed much to the use of the term civilité used by French courtiers in the sixteenth century to signify refinement and polished manners. In Germany the term zivilization acquired a somewhat different meaning. The absence of a strong central state or political centre meant that the nation was divided between many courts, all of them French speaking in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and each of them relatively closed and hostile to outsiders. The aristocratic disdain for the German language intensified a preoccupation with national identity, especially among the rising circles of the bourgeoisie.
