Eurocentrism (also Western-centrism)[1] is a worldview about the works and criticism of Western civilization. The exact beliefs of the term changes from the entire Western world to only Europe or even just Western Europe (especially during the Cold War).

When applied to history, it may refer to a stance towards European colonialism and other forms of imperialism.[2]
