• Collapse columns in Permian and Carboniferous Formations of coal, Qinshui Basin, China
    with Zonghu Liao, Long Wen, and Lianbo Zeng
    Interpretation 1-14. forthcoming.
    The collapse column is an interesting morphology of collapse in the coal basins. Collapse columns are demonstrated using seismic survey within Paleozoic stratum, including the Permian Shanxi Formation and Carboniferous Taiyuan Formation, Qinshui Basin, Shanxi Province, China. Seismic amplitude and attribute of coherence from the seismic survey have been used to characterize the morphology of collapse columns. Main observations include: There are circular/oval patches of discontinuities on the ho…Read more

    Estimation of microfracture porosity in deep carbonate reservoirs based on 3D rock-physics templates
    with Mengqiang Pang, Jing Ba, Li-Yun Fu, José M. Carcione, and Uti I. Markus
    Interpretation 8 (4). 2020.
    Carbonate reservoirs in the S area of the Tarim Basin are ultradeep hydrocarbon resources, with low porosity, complex fracture systems, and dissolved pores. Microfracturing is a key factor of reservoir connectivity and storage space. We have performed measurements on limestone samples, under different confining pressures, and we used the self-consistent approximation model and the Biot-Rayleigh theory of double porosity to study the microfractures. We have computed the fluid properties as a func…Read more

  • Knowledge Integration: Its Meaning and Measurement
    with Ronald Rousseau and Xiaojun Hu
    In Wolfgang Glänzel, Henk F. Moed, Ulrich Schmoch & Mike Thelwall (eds.), Springer Handbook of Science and Technology Indicators, Springer Verlag. pp. 69-94. 2019.
    Interdisciplinary research depends on research traditions and fields originating from different research teams, different countries and regions. Its essence is knowledge integration. As a dynamic and interactive process it continuously pushes the structure of science to become a complex diverse system.In this chapter, we provide a systematic review of interdisciplinary research. Starting from a definition of interdisciplinary research, its elements, and its role for scientific progress, we parti…Read more

    Is Inquiry-Based Science Teaching Worth the Effort?
    Science & Education 25 (7-8): 897-915. 2016.
    Inquiry-based science teaching has been advocated by many science educational standards and reports from around the world. Disagreements about and concerns with this teaching approach, however, are often ignored. Opposing ideas and conflicting results have been bouncing around in the field. It seems that the field carries on with a hope that someday they can reconcile. Unfortunately, over half a century, the opposing views have never been reconciled. Rather, they have become clearly divided, as …Read more
  • Turning erythrocytes into functional micromotors
    with Z. Wu, T. Li, J. Li, W. Gao, T. Xu, C. Christianson, M. Galarnyk, Q. He, and J. Wang
    © 2014 American Chemical Society.Attempts to apply artificial nano/micromotors for diverse biomedical applications have inspired a variety of strategies for designing motors with diverse propulsion mechanisms and functions. However, existing artificial motors are made exclusively of synthetic materials, which are subject to serious immune attack and clearance upon entering the bloodstream. Herein we report an elegant approach that turns natural red blood cells into functional micromotors with th…Read more

    On the Political Significance of Marx's Practical Philosophy
    with He Lai
    Frontiers of Philosophy in China 3 (2). 2008.
    In order to deepen the studies on the philosophy of practice, it is essential to explore the political significance of Marx's philosophy of practice. Marx's philosophy of practice is rooted in the problem of modernity and the separation between "individual subjectivity" and "societal community" in the modern context is the basic background of Marx's practical philosophy. It is the basic interest of Marx's philosophy of practice to find a way to end this separation via critique of civil society. …Read more

    Levinas Faces Kant, Hegel and Heidegger: Debates of Contemporary Philosophy on Ontology
    with Ye Xiushan
    Frontiers of Philosophy in China 3 (3). 2008.
    Levinas subverts the traditional "ontology-epistemology," and creates a "realm of difference," the realm of "value," "ethic," and "religion," maintaining that ethics is real metaphysics. According to him, it is not that "being" contains the "other" but the other way round. In this way, the issues of ethics are promoted greatly in the realm of philosophy. Nonetheless, he does not intend to deny "ontology" completely, but reversed the relationship between "ontology (theory of truth)" and "ethics (…Read more

    Heidegger's Distortion of Dialectics in "Hegel's Concept of Experience"
    with Deng Xiaomang
    Frontiers of Philosophy in China 4 (2). 2009.
    This essay reveals five points in which Heidegger misreads Hegel in "Hegel's Concept of Experience": (1) By forcedly introducing the concept of "will", he interprets Hegel's phenomenology of spirit into Metaphysics of Presence; (2) interprets concepts such as "statement" and "the road of skeptics" as the process of phenomenological reduction; (3) reduces Hegel's Sein to Seiende; (4) replaces "Contradiction" with "Ambiguity" so the active Dialectics become passive; (5) exaggerates conscious exper…Read more

    The Roots of Chinese Philosophy and Culture — An Introduction to "Xiang" and "Xiang Thinking"
    with Wang Shuren
    Frontiers of Philosophy in China 4 (1). 2009.
    To grasp the truth in traditional Chinese classics, we need to uncover the long obscured "xiang" 象 (image) thinking, which has long been overshadowed by Occidentalism, "xiang thinking" is the most fundamental thought of human beings. The logic of linguistics all comes from "xiang thinking". Through conceptual thinking, people can understand Western classics on metaphysics, yet they may not completely understand the various schools of Chinese classics. The difference between Chinese and Western w…Read more

    The concept of right or fit is an important element entailed, but not fully articulated, in the concept of action or practice in Aristotle's theory of virtue; which, however, turns to be of the utmost importance in later Western ethics. Right is concerned with both feelings and actions, and is not the same for all individuals. It lies in between the two extremes of the spectrum of practical affairs, yet by no means equidistant from them. This account of the concept of fitness or right is derived…Read more

    Human Dignity as a Right
    with Gan Shaoping
    Frontiers of Philosophy in China 4 (3). 2009.
    The concept of human dignity and the relationship between dignity and human rights have been important subjects in contemporary international academia. This article first analyzes the different understandings of the concept of dignity, which has left great influences in history (including the "theory of attribution-dignity", the "theory of autonomy-dignity" or the "theory of moral completeness/achievement-dignity", and the "theory of end-in-itself-dignity"); it then exposes the obvious defects o…Read more

    Judging Gadamer's theoretical stance is a complicated matter, and his ontological hermeneutics is usually regarded as a text-centered theory of understanding. Through an analysis of the phenomenological premises from which his theories take off, however, we can clearly see his reader-centric stance. On the basis of this stance some cease to seek for the original intention of the author or the original meaning of the text, which ineluctably leads to the ignorance of an understanding methodology. …Read more
