Abstract
The printing press was invented in China five hundred years before I. Gutenberg. As of the middle of the eighteenth century more books were printed in Chinese than in all other languages around the world. China was to the highest degree a writing civilization. The writing here did not arise for recording human speech, rather than to communicate with the spirits. Written language and culture are marked in China by the same word. However, throughout the Imperial period, Chinese thinking is largely formed under the influence of I Ching, followed in the main with the schemes which L. Levy-Bruhl defined as a primitive way of thinking. They apply to the cognitive styles of illiterate Chinese peasants as well as to cognitive styles of the highly educated Chinese elite.
