Neo-Weberian Concept of Easternization in the Realm of Western Cultural Adaptation

Authors : Saman Hashemipour

Abstract: Colin Campbell is a neo-Weberian critic who defined self-easternization of the West based on Max Weber’s concepts of subculture, class and status. Social before Max Weber believed social matters are the result of internal movement, without the involvement of humanity but Weber in sociology of religion concentrated on social action and human life in society. Campbell describes how the gradual import of Eastern values Easternized the West based on the open, secular values of Westerners. It is also the influence of the East over the culture of the West and the West’s image of the East, without accepting any domination over Western culture. This cultural adaptation of what was originally an Eastern worldview by the West is defined as “Easternization.”
