Discussions of international politics in the contemporary period tend to be couched in terminologies consciously developed from political science, history, philosophy (usually post-Enlightenment) and behavioural science. These analyses are therefore largely a product of modern and post-modern concerns. Even when Asian politics, foreign affairs and values are discussed, they are still discussed almost exclusively through the filter of European, and often specifically through Anglo-American concerns.
