Abstract

The article explores and introduces some of the crucial problems linked to Asian studies, from the viewpoint of intercultural methodology. The author explains why the mastering of Asian languages in the research process is of central importance, for it allows us, among other things, to apply and incorporate into the research original, primary sources from these regions. Through the lens of such methodological issues, the article then explores some central problems of Asian modernization and the question of whether this can really be equated with Westernization. The author concludes that modernization is a process, which includes universal, as well as culturally determined elements.
