The first edition of "Embracing Cultures" also digs deep into the distinctions between culture and civilization. To Cayol, culture is memory, and civilization is a comprehensive way of gathering cultures. "You remember all the works, all the artworks of the past … 100 years ago, 1,000 years ago, and it still remains a very current, dynamic and modern thing. It's about past and present", Cayol says.Chu argues that "It's not which culture has priority, what civilization is right or wrong. It's just the ability to think differently".
