This volume brings together a series of essays on this theme. It is divided into five sections which address as many topics: the textual representation of the "Other"; 16th- and 17th-century maps of China, Japan and Vietnam; the phenomenon of hybridisation in visual representations; knowledge and representations of the world in Europe and East Asia; and the circulation of representations of the heavens in astronomy between these two regions.
