Chinese culture and atomism

Author: Artem I. Kobzev

About the author:

Artem I. Kobzev,


This article represents the first generalized Russian research of all possible analogues of atomism in China and history of its penetration from abroad. According to the general culturological theory of global “East—West” alternative, the author has formulated the concept of intrinsic interrelation of the Western atomism (Mediterranean, Indian, Muslim) with the idealism and the alphabetic writing, and the Eastern (Chinese and widely — sinictic) continualism with naturalism and hieroglyphic writing.
