Clash among humans, either individually or in groups, is a normal phenomenon from forgotten times because interaction among humans is not always positive. Clashes can occur with the intention to control, protect interests, to show-off, to obtain natural resources and so forth. Thus, the question is why is this aspect of clashes exaggerated until it has become a priority and imperative in interactions between humans and civilisations. Therefore, this article will survey the history behind the emergence of the term “clash of civilisations” from its beginning until recent times.
