Description:

The paper looks at how in his article called "Science and China's Influence on the World," Needham relates the history of the way in which China has contributed to technological developments throughout the world. The paper explains that Needham's main point is that China has been treated unfairly by historians and others in the West. The paper explains that up till now, China has been viewed mainly as a quaint, exotic, unimportant third world state - not nearly as intelligent and sophisticated as the West, while on the other hand, Europe has been viewed as the origin of all science and technology, in an unbroken tradition of genius originating with the Ancient Greeks. The paper notes that Needham concedes that the Ancient Greeks did in fact originate science.
