This chapter traces modernity as a product of the Western experience of modernity and the effects of Western views on modernity. Due to the Western influence on the concept of modernity, different Modernities came about to offset the West, such as Japanese modernity. The different views of modernity lead to questions such as what are the differences between the various modernities, and what implications do the differences create in terms of where the rest of the world stands? The chapter takes on the challenges of Western Modernity and connects it with the historical background of Turkish modernity.

Keywords:   Western modernity, Japanese modernity, Turkish modernity, West, East
