    Adultery Is a Capital Offense
    Contemporary Chinese Thought 30 (3): 57-60. 1999.
    Before The Bridges of Madison County was released, several editor friends of mine wanted me to go and see it, and to write a short article about it when I had. The movie has finished showing now, and I never did go to see it. This was not because I was being deliberately snooty about it, but chiefly because there was a debate around the movie that I found very irritating; and as a result, I did not have the slightest desire to go and see it. Some people said the novel advocated extramarital affa…Read more

    The idea of conducting “upstream public engagement,” using nanotechnology as a test case, has been subject to criticism for its lack of any link to the political system. Drawing on the theoretical tools provided by Habermas, this article seeks to explore such a “link”, focusing specifically on the capacity of civil society organizations to distil, raise and transmit societal concerns in an amplified form to the public spheres at the European Union level. Based on content analysis and semi-struct…Read more

    The Dignity of the Individual
    Contemporary Chinese Thought 30 (3): 83-87. 1999.
    During my time overseas, I often noticed that when people made value judgments about current events, they would do so from two separate standpoints: One was that of national or social dignity, and seemed, as it were, to be the warp of the events; the other was that of personal dignity, and seemed to be the weft. When I came back to China, the weft appeared to be missing, and even the word "dignity" had an unfamiliar feel to it

    Threats to Moral Identity: Testing the Effects of Incentives and Consequences of One's Actions on Moral Cleansing
    with Lauren N. Harkrider, Michael A. Tamborski, Ryan P. Brown, Michael D. Mumford, Shane Connelly, and Lynn D. Devenport
    Ethics and Behavior 23 (2): 133-147. 2013.
    Individuals engage in moral cleansing, a compensatory process to reaffirm one's moral identity, when one's moral self-concept is threatened. However, too much moral cleansing can license individuals to engage in future unethical acts. This study examined the effects of incentives and consequences of one's actions on cheating behavior and moral cleansing. Results found that incentives and consequences interacted such that unethical thoughts were especially threatening, resulting in more moral cle…Read more

    Beyond the Systemic Changes
    Contemporary Chinese Thought 31 (4): 62-70. 2000.
    About a month ago, I went to a university to give a lecture. During the questions-and-answers and discussion, a young fellow standing in the last row drew a good deal of attention: "Some people today show concern for spiritual values but are very helpless where material life is concerned." However, he said, "more people are pursuing only material benefits and have absolutely no spiritual requirements." You may perhaps doubt that people today truly, as he indicated, regard the spiritual and the m…Read more

    My Views on the Novel
    Contemporary Chinese Thought 30 (3): 47-49. 1999.
    I have enjoyed reading fiction since I was young, and until I was twenty-eight I believed that I could write it myself. Then I read a novel by [Michel] Tournier and changed my mind. Imperceptibly, great changes have taken place in fiction. The difference between modern fiction and classical fiction is as great as the difference between the car and the horse-drawn cart. The finest of the modern novels cannot be read ten lines at a glance. Let me cite an example, so that my readers can come to sha…Read more

    Cultural Debates
    Contemporary Chinese Thought 30 (3): 13-18. 1999.
    [Bertrand] Russell, in On Authority, wrote about a kind of hieratic authority which in the past lay in the hands of the clergy, and said that in the West, intellectuals are the descendants of these clergy. He also said that Chinese Confucianism possessed a hieratic authority, which leads us to think that China's intellectuals are the descendants of the Confucians. The knowledge that clergy and Confucians possessed came from a few sacred books, such as the Bible and the Analects. But modern intel…Read more

    Discourse on nationalism in China’s traditional cultural education: Teachers’ perspectives
    with Ting Wang
    Educational Philosophy and Theory 50 (12): 1089-1100. 2018.
    Education of Chinese cultural traditions has been endorsed by the central government in Mainland China in recent years. The article presents a study which examined how nationalism advocated in the policy text has been interpreted at the localized level by primary school teachers in Beijing. The study draws on discourse theories as the primary point of reference. The qualitative coding methods and textual analysis were employed to interpret the meanings of 52 interview transcripts of public prima…Read more

    My Views on "Culture Fever"
    Contemporary Chinese Thought 30 (3): 10-12. 1999.
    We've had quite a number of outbreaks of "culture fever": The first one was apparently in 1985, when I was studying overseas, and friends told me the fever was raging at home in China. When I came home in 1988, I was in time for the second one. And over the last two years there has been a fever of cultural criticism, or "discussions on the humanist spirit." It looks as though the phenomenon of culture fever has certain similarities to a flu epidemic. The first two fevers were fairly respectable,…Read more

    Reference point-dependent tradeoffs in intertemporal decision making
    with Jeffrey S. Simons
    Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (5): 663-664. 2005.
    We agree with Ainslie's general approach to intertemporal choices and self-control. However, we argue that a concept of “will” is superfluous in explaining tradeoffs between SS (smaller and sooner) and LL (larger and later) rewards in a framework of temporal goal setting and goal aggregation. We provide an alternative framework of reference point-dependent tradeoffs between SS and LL options.

    How is Environmental Ethics Possible?
    Proceedings of the Xxii World Congress of Philosophy 23 155-167. 2008.
    In the history of ethical thoughts of China and the West, ethical relations are always regarded as social relations among people, and the objects to which ethical norms apply are targeted for social business or man’s behavior. What traditional ethics concerns is ethical relationship among people or ethical feature of socialbusiness or man’s behavior. By comparison with it, environmental ethics has a good reputation for its research on ethical relationship between human being and natural environm…Read more

    Experiencing Life
    Contemporary Chinese Thought 30 (3): 50-53. 1999.
    I make my living by writing. Someone once said to me, "It's no good writing like this; you've no life! "At first I thought he meant I was dead, and I got very angry. Then I suddenly thought that the word' life" could be used in a different way. Writers often go and live for a while in remote places where conditions are hard, and such excursions are called "experiencing life." This expression may sound as if it refers to a corpse momentarily coming back to life, but that is not actually what it m…Read more
