RELATIONSHIP AND INSTITUTION: A THEORETICAL INTERPRETATION FRAMEWORK FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF CHINESE POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY

Published 2022-06-24

Abstract

China’s way of doing things is the typical East way, which is the group-

based thinking, paying attention to people-oriented, focusing on “people”

in dealing with things, having strong interpersonal relationships, and

strong flexibility. The management of the West countries adopt the

dichotomy method of thinking, which is unclear. All of them are governed

by law, in accordance with institution management, without flexibility. For

them, interpersonal relationships are weak, but with clear division of

labor, powerful checks and balances, as well as clear rights and

obligations. Because of the different social forms of the East and West

countries and different social situations, China and other Eastern

countries have paid more attention to the overall relationship, while

Western countries have focused on the individual and specific issues of

independence. This paper analyzes the Eastern and Western cultures

based on the genetic differences between the East and the West. Starting

from the group standard of the eastern countries and the individual

standard of the western countries, the differences between the eastern and

western cultures are analyzed from the philosophical levelChina’s way of doing things is the typical East way, which is the group- based thinking, paying attention to people-oriented, focusing on “people” in dealing with things, having strong interpersonal relationships, and strong flexibility.
