Not snobbish, just plain facts. Philosophy is a huge subject. Some things the western philosophers were more developed at, some things, the eastern philosophers were more developed at.

Just an example.
Though i'd say in general, eastern philosophers- the emminent ones- were more comprehensive with their philosophical approach. Which is why philosophers like Buddha or Nagarjuna or Mahavira, Adi Shankara, etc. spawned off/revived religions while western philosophy was in general far more narrow in its focus, operating within the frameworks of religion until Kant came along.
