I Ching is a is an ancient Chinese philosophy book about "self, relationship, self-empowerment, community, compassion, descendants, wisdom, future ",and it played a significant role in Chinese people's life since ancient times.
and you use the rice to make the pic,I think it is another important factor of Chinese people's life.
thank you,Klaus,you understand Chinese culture very well.

Thank you, dear friend.
Chinese culture - its poetry, philosophy - and the I Ching (!) - is of an immense value and it's actually a present to mankind.

I am very proud you say that.But now in China there are lots of young people do not care too much about our cultural heritage , they more care and imitation the Western culture, but,in the West, more and more people have interested in China's ancient culture, This may be a manifestation of globalization.many thanks,my dear friend.Klaus.

I can only agree: It's no use having a look at the world around you without being rooted in one's own traditions.

Weilin Gong has replied to Evelyne Cole
Evelyne:
I think you have misunderstanding about the definition of the word-"sinologist".

The western sinologist,just like Dr.John King Fairbank,David Hawks......,their research, translated Chinese ancient books ,and the main point of view just from Weatern people,represents the views of mainstream of western society, not only affects the western countries for several generations of Western people, but also directly or indirectly affect the wetern countres' political and public attitude towards China,so that Western people can understand China, Chinese culture,and improve the Sino-Western countries relations.Their main contribution is let the Western world understand China,and understand Chinese culture better, and another order is to help their own government to formulate relevant policies of China.

Sinologists in China pay more attention to the Chinese ancient and morden literature, philosophy, poetry, historical research. their contributions can let we Chinese people understand and rember and use our Chines culture extensively and profoundly . Their work has also make contributions to world culture,beacuse China is a part of the world.

Each sinologist has different research field and direction,and diffrent standpoint.

so, there is no the best sinologists.

I thank you so much for the explanation Weiling Gong. You should know best. It is quite true that the first "scientists", etnologues, sinologists and others did model the world at large according to their thinking which were not always correct nor impartial. I am glad you pick up the point.

thank you,Evelyne.my friend.
I agree with Klaus very much,"It's no use having a look at the world around you without being rooted in one's own traditions."It is undeniable that Western civilization is the center of the mainstream of morden world culture, art, or even aesthetic , and I hope more and more young people in our country even young people in Asia respect their own culture and history.
