Workshop and book discussion
By Dr. Walter Lee (Hong Kong Metropolitan University)
14 November 10:00 CET online
During this workshop the author of the monograph “Principles and Laws in World Politics: Classical Chinese Perspectives on Global Conflict” Assistant Professor from Hong Kong Metropolitan University Dr. Walter Lee together with Prof. Erika de Wet (Institute of International Law and International Relations), Prof. Josef Marko (Institute of Public Law and Political Science) and Prof. Franz Winter (Institute for Religious Studies) will discuss contemporary Chinese international relations in light of ancient Chinese philosophy, and then stride into the future searching for common principles and laws guiding modern international relations.
The book examines whether "Knowledge Archaeology of Chinese International Relations" (KACIR), coined by the author, responds sensibly to today's issues of international ethics and global justice. Monograph contends that emancipative hermeneutics holds the key to the Chinese soft power puzzle. A bottom-up, non-nationalistic, and non-ethnocentric approach to the Chinese civilization will reinvent intellectual pluralism and cosmopolitan elements in the Chinese tradition that interact constructively with and ultimately transcend the liberal Western model.
