As technology has accelerated the world of nature and the world of work,...

The arts from Han to T'ang China include discoveries in printing and publishing and chemistry; by the Ming period, there are substantial innovations in mechanics. The signal discoveries Francis Bacon identified with Western Europe—printing, the mechanical clock, and firearms—came to Europe from Eastern civilizations. There is no reason to doubt that civilizations with nongraphic forms of record keeping, such as knotted strings or oral...
