Western country
The Western world, also known as the West and the Occident (from Latin: occidens "sunset, West"; as contrasted with the Orient), is a term referring to different nations depending on the context. There are many accepted definitions about what all these nations have in common.
The concept of the Western part of the earth has its roots in Greco-Roman civilization in Europe and with the advent of Christianity. In the modern era, Western culture has been heavily influenced by the traditions of the Renaissance, Protestant Reformation, Age of Enlightenment, and shaped by the expansive colonialism of the 15th-20th centuries. Before the Cold War era, the traditional Western viewpoint identified Western Civilization with the Western Christian (Catholic-Protestant) countries and culture. Its political usage was temporarily changed by the antagonism during the Cold War in the mid-to-late 20th Century (1947–1991).[citation needed]
The term originally had a literal geographic meaning, contrasting Europe with the linked cultures and civilizations of the Middle East and North Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia and remote Far East, which used to be seen as the East by early-modern Europeans, but today this has little geographic relevance, since the United States and Canada are in the Americas, Russia expands to Northern Asia and Australia and New Zealand are part of Oceania.[citation needed]
In the contemporary cultural meaning, the phrase "Western world" includes Europe, as well as many countries of European colonial origin with majority European ancestral populations in the Americas and Oceania.[dead link][dead link]
