Perhaps this has been asked previously but I could not find it in the archives…
Why is Europe considered a continent? My wife
says that only Americans consider North and South America to be two seperate continents. Using that logic I asked why europe is considered a continent at all, its just bolted on to Asia as an afterthought. IMHO, europeans were just practicing a form of cultural imperialism and did not wish to be included among asians. Does this just all boil down to definitions of “continent”?
Thanks in advance.
