How do i become less Eurocentric? Or is Eurocentric the right thing to be and other cultures simply don't matter as much to human progress as Europeans do?

For the past 400 years or so, yes. It'll probably stay that way for another hundred.

Don't try to be the "not eurocentric" insufferable faggot.

Just don't be ignorant about non-European countries.

This

Just shut the fuck about it and be well rounded

You cannot really "be" (as in how you are, not what you do) or "become" eurocentric or non eurocentric. You act in an eurocentric way, or avoid it.

There's literally nothing wrong with being eurocentric when studying europe, to be honest. But you really should try to study other places, if you're curious about european history you should be curious abouth those too.

Read accounts from other cultures and see how they relate to European ones.

Think about how different peoples saw the world around them.

There's nothing wrong with being Eurocentric when it pertains to western civilization

they never include the channel islands :'(

Don't get fucking bluepilled by these /lit/ idiots. It's anti-eurocentrism that is ruining the west and starting multiculturalism. Study your own white heritage, don't give in to brainwashing.

Study what interests you, but be aware of other cultures. If you're studying "human progress", by nature you're going to be looking a lot at Europe. If you define that by philosophy, however, there's a lot worth looking into for Eastern Philosophy. If you're a mythology type, there's some interesting beliefs around the entire world. Just don't shut yourself off to the world outside of Europe and your interest should follow naturally.

Is it not possible to be interested in both European and non-European contributions?

Eastern "philosophy" is little more than religious mysticism.

It's hard to be entirely eurocentric when studying even just European history. Asia's and Northern Africa's histories are intertwined with it, even if it may not appear obvious at first.
