Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a list of sources of illustrations relevant to the book, which discusses the concept of 'Orientalism' as the negative approach to the Orient seen in Western science and culture. The American literature historian of Pakistani birth, Edward Said (1978), triggered a revolutionary paradigm shift in the relevant disciplines. According to Said, European scholars, authors and artists construed a generalizing, essentialist and dichotomous image starting at the end of the eighteenth century of a stagnating, despotic and irrational East as the opposite of the dynamic, well-governed and rational West.

Keywords: Edward Said; European scholars; orientalism
