    In the discourse of cross-cultural comparison. whether of literature or of customs,there is always the danger of beinng judgmental. of measuring the value of the objectof study by the extent to which it resembles or does not resemble our ownexperience. The first tendency results in ethnocentricity: the second in exoticism.The natural instinct to understand a foreign or unfamiliar object is to relate it to anatively familiar reference point. but the problem is that, all too often. people fail torealize that the referencc point is circumstantial and situational. rather than absoluteand universal. Two examples should suffice to illustrate the widespread tendency.The notion of clockwise is an inbred cultural convention but. unbeknownst to mostif not all those who know what clockwise. and hence, counterclockwise is, itdepends on a distinctly northern hemisphere bias. The clock was intended toreplicate the characteristics of the previous time-keeping technology. the sundial.The hands of the clock move in the same direction as the shadow cast by the sun ona sundial during the course of the day. However, had the sundial been used in thesouthern hemisphere. and had the clock been invented in the southern hemisphere.imitating the shadow of the sun across a sundial would have resulted in clockwiseas progressing in a direction opposite to the direction we conventionally accept as"clockwise" today.
    Even simple Boolean drstinctions as "a" and "non-a" can lead to distortions anddisaffections. "Non-Western" is a locution often used in the West, but the phrase isdistinctly prejudicial. as if it were important to characterize something by what it isnot. "Non-Western" cultures are also "non-amphibian" and "non-ethereal" cultures;the negation is restricted, and by being restricted, it privileges what it inherentlyasserts. One identifies the non-Western by the Western. (I do not assert that thislapse is peculiarly Western. although there appears to be no counterpart of"non-Western" in Asian languages. no "non-Asian" in Chinese, Japanese. orKorean (although there is a distinction in these Countries, as there doubtless is in allothers. between the native and the foreign).
