Abstract
This publication discusses the origin of European tradition of rational inquiry, and contrasts it with the Chinese tradition. It argues that both the European and Greek cultural contexts were favorable for the development of 'philosophy', but that historical developments in China starting in the 3rd century BCE have made the Chinese tradition increasingly different from the European. The article also discusses the 19th and 20th century Chinese attempts to link up with the European tradition.
