Western traditionally= West of Rome. Likewise, Eastern European nations...Eastern=east of Rome. When discussing art, history, music, or "Western Culture", this is typically used as the dividing line. I can't presume that is what the author intended, but it is most frequently the way it is used.

I really enjoyed this article. I am always trying to incorporate these same principals into landscape designs. It is easy to reconnect with nature and feel something after visiting a Japanese garden.
