James Andreoli Professor Roberts ARLT 100 Renaissance The Differences between the East and West’s Interactions Interpretation allows for many different opinions of a certain event. It is clear that because of the ambiguity of the Renaissance, it is ambiguous as to the actual events that occurred and how they could be interpreted. In Orientalism, by Said, the interaction is seen as one of cultural exchange in the form of the Orient is where everything started out for example, that is where civilization started. Whereas in Worldly Goods, by Lisa Jardine and The Renaissance Bazaar , by Jerry Brotton describes the interactions of East and West through the Renaissance as an exchange of merchandise and ideas throughout the East and West. It is clear that both of these descriptions could potentially be valid. When one considers exactly how the Renaissance played out, the East-West interactions were very clearly an example of merchant exchange. Trade existed despite any political relationships, whether good or bad.
